Input Chinese keyword in the WebSearch Page or the Pattern skin topbar. I can't get the result. But if I use advanced search with regex, it will work.


Edit TWiki/WebTopBar.txt and TWiki/WebSearch.txt add <input type="hidden" name="type" value="regex" /> to use regex as the default search type.
Optionally, replace spacing as [\s\S]* with javascript.
