Wildcards in Forum Search RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would 'could' be nice to use Wildcards in the Forum search.

    In the [Browse Users], [Search] functionality, a trailing wildcard is allowed.

    It would be nice if trailing wildcards could be accommodated in Forum Searches -that assumes the indexing would allow efficient searching without significant performance impact. Leading wildcards -NO!

    You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

  • Thanks Arnie, we do plan on spending time improving search in the coming future. Currently we're using SQL full text search but we're looking into using windows live search as a possible solution to searching and then we'd get the power of live search with all the wildcard support it has. Otherwise we'd have to roll out our own solution. We'll try and keep you posted on this in the coming months.
