This small patch adds described functionality.

both in TYPO3 CMS 4.5.20 and 6.1.0 if you click the pagetree filter and enter an ID (e.g. "50"), it works.
But if you have "50" as text in the pagetitle ("50 shades of grey" - LOL) it will be found ,too.

IMHO should be more nice if you could use an expression like:

Can we close this one? Searching by ID is already possible and I dont consider it a bug that a page with "50" in its title is found if one searches for "50". A construct like id:50 is not desireable at all, as it is unintuitive and bad in terms of usability.

Yes, you can close this one. Thank you.

I would like to reopen this.

AFAIK, the current behaviour if you use "Filter Tree" and use a number num, you get a list of pages including:

  • page with page id= num
  • pages which have num in their title
  • others ... ?

Additionally, it would be useful to be able to filter by specific page id only.

Yes, this is not a bug. Correct. But this issue was opened as feature. If you don't agree or there is some other way to do this, please close again.

I like Riccardo's suggestion but any other way to do this would be fine with me too.

Example Usecase:

In an installation (TYPO3 8) with about 30000 pages, I want to filter by page uid=17. This gets me a huge number of results, including any page with 17 in the title.

This is not a theoretical usecase, but something which has happened to me a number of times, I find it annoying and it complicates the workflow.

Please regard the scrollbar. What you are seeing here is just a subset of the found pages. Page uid=17 actually exists.
