Filter BB code and smilies from search results?

    I've noticed that searching for "attach" or "attachment", [edit, it's only 'attach'] etc on xenforo.com just finds all the posts that have attachments embedded in them, not posts that talk about attachments. Similarly, you can search for rolleyes or notworthy and find the posts that have the smilies in them. While these two smilies aren't specifically problematic, I could see this being a problem, depending on what your smiley codes were.

    Is there a way to filter these out? You wouldn't want to add them to the stop words...

    Nope. You would have to add them to the stopwords afaik.

    Yeah, but adding them to the stopwords is throwing the baby out with the bathwater, right? You couldn't search for those terms before, but now you *really* can't search for them.
