Default Searching with Wildcards

I used to be able to do a search using the * wildcard - for instance AUG08VSNMINI* (to pick up AUG08VSNMINIA, AUG08VSNMINIB, AUG08VSNMINIC, etc). But that isn't working now.

Is that just because of the changes in the gallery, or will is it fixable?

Hi Karen ~ I just tried searching by keyword and found that if you use AUG08VSN like 17 show up then if you add the letters like O and P to the end there are many more. I wonder if people simply did not use the keywords you are looking for? maybe?

I know that if you use the "complete" keyword you will find the entries, but if I wanted to look at all the VSN entries - which encompasses many keywords - then the asterisk is a helpful tool. It used to work - over a year ago.

I've brought the issue up before, but I never get a response, so I'm just trying to find out if we won't get this option back or not.

Yeah, I'm not very sure about wildcard searching. . .I know I'd asked a while ago, too. . .

Scott's the man who'd know for sure, and he's out for the week, so we'll have to wait 'til he returns. I'll put it on my list!
