From TWikibug:Item6217

DEFAULTTYPE, not DEFAULTTTYPE.

And even if I corrected the spelling, it didn't work. After I change that setting to regex, in WebSearch Page, it still uses keyword search.

It is actually misspelled also in the code.

Fix or not fix? Piss of anyone that put it in SitePreferences by fixing it or not?

I think we should not fix it.

The problem Feng raised that "it does not work" is that he tries in the WebSearch page which has it own idea of default.

I choose to document what we have because

  • The only time we have heard trouble is this one bug item
  • The WebSearch works fine as it is and the default we have now was discussed and decided on some years ago
  • The spelling correction will create more trouble than help

and I will not change any behavior at all.
