Searching for part of word instead of whole word

Post by jeremyotten » Tue Dec 08, 2009 2:50 pm

I saw the search option in phpbb is limited. When i search for a part of a word nothing gets found... I have to search for exact the word to find anything.....

Try using a 'wildcard'
*
with your search
Search for keywords:
Place + in front of a word which must be found and - in front of a word which must not be found. Put a list of words separated by | into brackets if only one of the words must be found. Use * as a wildcard for partial matches.
