Special Characters

Special characters refer to any character that is not alphanumeric, meaning any character that is not a number (0-9) or a letter (A-Z).

When it comes to Boost Search, these special characters are treated as blank spaces by default, and accents are ignored as well. For instance, if a user searches for "(shirt)", Boost would treat it as "shirt". This rule applies to all features, including Search, Synonyms, and Autosuggest.
