[MediaWiki-l] Search feature / Change in behaviour

Heiya,

I have upgraded from 1.23 to 1.27 which was now possible since the
latest release.

After the process I observe a changed behavior regarding the rudimentary
full-text search MediaWiki provides out of the box, i.e. I am not
talking about the Cirrus/Elastica duo available as an extra.

When adding a search term to the search field on MW 1.27 like e.g.
"Lorem ipsum" (note: including the ") than only the page names for the
findings are shown and not the page names and some text extract wrapping
the searched term as MW 1.23 did. When adding just Lorem ipsum (note:
excluding the ") I get the page names and some text extract wrapping the
searched term as I did with 1.23. The results for Lorem ipsum however
are a much worse fit than for "Lorem ipsum" so that's why I am here.

Perhaps I missed some setting I now have to make or perhaps there is
some script I overlooked to get things running. I'd like to get the
wrapping text back. Pointers highly appreciated.

Thanks for your time

Karsten
