If a form field has a name with blanks like [[form field]] - when searching for this, you need to search for formfield, as the blank is cropped. I dont find this in documentation of SEARCH so I put it here.

It is documented in DataForms under Field Name Notes:
You can space out the title of the field, and it will still find the topic e.g. Aeroplane Manufacturers is equivalent to AeroplaneManufacturers.

Thanks Martin. We seem to get this type of question on IRC every now and then; and even some plugin authors seem to be unaware that field names can be links (Eg. RenderFormPlugin doesn't handle this well at all).

So I would close this but would like it to be made into an FAQ item.

Created Support.Faq14. I still think the [<nop>[FieldName][Descriptive human-friendly Field Name]] needs to be made more obvious in the DataForms topic.

-- PaulHarvey - 02 Feb 2010

Ack. I found this doc, but late as it was not very upfront positioned. And Paul is right, that [<nop>[FieldName][Descriptive human-friendly Field Name]] should be explained somewhere.
