  • Currently the search box expands any entered macro.
  • Probably should not, because it shows some informations about the wiki without logging in, like in the following example

Confirmed. This is pretty confusing and not documented that I can find. It makes sense with the expected inside-out l-r expansion, but not for the web user who expects to search for the entered text. Also behaves this way on 1.1.9, so not a new issue.

Went all the way back to Foswiki 1.0.9, which pre-dated the deprecation of the bin/search script. Still an issue. So this is very old behaviour.
