View Full Version : adding an asterisk "*", comes back with ZERO matches

I was searching for seatbelts, but below is a better example:

EX: searching by "title only" in the "for sale" forum....

searching for "parts" comes up with 10 matches
searching for "part*" comes up with zero matches

I tried searching to see if this has already been brought up, but that didn't go to well either. :D

Wildcard searches are disabled.

Better search terms yield better results.

That needs to be noted on the search page as one might think there aren't any matches and therefore do a "repost". :D

duh!?!?

so I guess I have to do multiple searches for now on then.....

seat AND belt
seat AND belts
seatbelt
seatbelts
etc....


ALSO: does the "and", "or", or "not" work???

I just searched:
seatbelt
and seat belt
Yielded good results. I also queried the database directly. There just are not that many instances of those two terms.
