How come...

When you have a title you can't use periods but when you search you can? And how come periods are allowed in tags or materials?

i didn't know periods were allowed in tags and materials...

i wouldn't know why anyone would use a period there either.
Mainly coz Etsy admins say so. And they own the website and can make any rules they want.

(I hope that doesn't sound snippy, I didn't mean it to sound that way.)
I just went and tried and edit to put a period in tags and it would not allowed me to use one, between words (e.g., instead of a comma), separate from words, and in the middle of two words. Do you know of an instance where a period is shown?

And I would guess that periods are allowed in searches because descriptions allow periods and searches find matches in descriptions as well as in titles.
JOYouz is pretty much on the money here -- periods are *not* allowed in tags or materials. Search queries more than just titles, so it doesn't really have any relation to the limitation placed on titles/tags/materials.
So I guess the answer is that it was initially made that way, as there was no way to have forseen that people would want to do this.
Yeah, I didn't read over my post. I actually meant to say that periods AREN'T allowed in tags/materials either. Thanks for the info. Next time I'll before I click post.

Joy- you didn't sound in the least snippy.
