    Hi,


    Have the search options from SF 3.7 "Enabling Wildcard and fuzzy searches" or "Stripping special characters" been removed?

    If not, could you please let me know where to locate them?
    Also, is there a list of features added or removed for the Search Service?

    Theank you.

    Hi,

    Lucene supports fuzzy searches based on the Levenshtein Distance. You can gather more information at

    Apache Lucene - Query Parser Syntax

    SearchResults control has a property that you can set to true.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the quick reply.
    I know Lucene supports fuzzy searches, I was wondering about the feature available in SF 3.7
    Is that still available in SF 4.0?

    How much is changed search-wise in Sf 4.0? Is there an article i can ready to gather all the information?

    Hi,

    We heave documented the widgets in our UserManual and here is small description about the search index.
    Actually we use "pipes" that are related to the publishing system and pass the data to the lucene ( there is a SearchManager class in Sitefinity 4.0 . SearchManager has a provider which is LuceneSearchProvider. This provider works with lucene API to create documents - unit of indexing and search.)

    Kind regards,
