    The Search index only seems to come up with results if full words are entered correctly.  Is there any way of setting up wildcards so say if some typed ent they would get all results like entered and maybe even ones like scent.  i.e *ent* or ent* ?

    Thanks Damian

    Hello Damian,

    In fact, our Search index works with wildcards. If you search for: ent*, en*, e*, ent?, en?? or e?t, it will work. The only odd behaviour is that only the page title is shown without the highlighted content that matches your search. This is a because the highlighter doesn't support such wildcards highlighting and it may take us some time to implement.
    Please notice that if you put ? or * in front of the search term, it won't work (*ent, ?nt and etc.). This is by design and it is not supported.
    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
