    Hi Gokhan,

    This is possible in the current version of Sitefinity.

    Edit the SearchResult control, Validation->EscapeSpecialCharacters should be set to False. By doing so, the regular expressions defined in the web.config file:
          <searchInputValidation> 
            <add matchPattern="\A[\*\?\~][^\s]*" replacementString="" enabled="true" matchAlert="You can not start your query using wildcards, modify your query and try again.." /> 
            <add matchPattern="[\!\^\(\)\{\}\[\]]" replacementString="" enabled="true" matchAlert="Strange characters should be enclosed between double quotation, modify your query and try again.." /> 
          </searchInputValidation> 
     
    will become active. You can tweak them to allow the special characters - for example quotes (for phrase search) or */? for wildcard searches. 

    Let me know if you need any further information. 

    Best wishes,
    Georgi
