Expected behavior: I search for a string, and get shown message "searchmenu-new", offering me to create an article by that name.
Actual behavior: the message doesn't appear if the search string includes a quote mark.
Example: I try to create a new article named Don "King" Kong, and I do so by searching for that string:
...I do not get the option to create an article of that name.
(Please note that a single quote anywhere in the string is enough to trigger this behavior)
This behavior seems to be triggered by flag $searchContainedSyntax, which I got lost tracking down in the source code. As far as I can tell, this is due to CirrusSearch; running a mediawiki-vagrant machine with vanilla search everything works as expected. I assume this is because vanilla search has no special search operators.
I'll totally understand if this is a WONTFIX...
