I have been struggling with some differences in the query language for
[query:?] vs. [[TicketQuery]]. I might have misunderstand something. Or
maybe the documentation may need an improvement.
According to the documentation both [query:?] and [[TicketQuery]] share
the same query language:
However, first of all a major difference is the separator character.
While [query:?] needs `&`, the [[TicketQuery]] promotes `,` but also
Second difference is the position of the `=` match operator in regards
to other operators like `!` but also `~`. While [query:?] needs `=!`,
the [[TicketQuery]] accepts both variant `!=` and `=!`.
I guess there are technical and historic reasons for those differences.
[query:] seems close to the URL query format, and [[TicketQuery()]] as a
powerful macro seems more generous.
I do not complain and I am more than willing to accept. But it took me 2
hours to find out. I would propose (and volunteer) to add a small note
in the documentation, which would remind these differences. Something
> ... Filters are separated by ampersands (`&`); the `[[TicketQuery]]` macro also accepts comma (`,`).
> Note that for `query:` the match operator `=` needs to be on first position when combined with other operators, for example `=!` or `~=`.
If I have totally misunderstood something, please correct me.
