[resolved] Search results finds image file name (2 posts)

    This is a great plugin!

    When I do a search, it appears that the search engine is not only finding text within my posts, but also it is finding embedded image file name text.
    As an example, I search for posts with the text "pie". When the results page displays, it shows a post that has no text with the word "pie". But when I search in the code of the post, the image name that I have used in the post has the word "pie in it. I know it would be easy to change the image name, but I have a lot of posts.
    You can see the above explained scenario here --> http://www.hotdishhomemaker.com/search/#text=pie
    It will be the top post result... the one about earrings.

    Is there a way around this?

    Thanks much in advance for the help :)

    Thanks for pointing that out. This is kind of intentional.. as if you had an image like <img src="my-dog.jpg"> and someone searched "my dog", we would want them to find that post.

    However, I can understand that this would be undesirable if you image names aren't related to the content of the post. I've added a note to our feature tracking system to look into a way to allow a user to weight these results differently, or ignore them entirely.
