wildcard search not working properly for title

wildcard search not working properly for title

Tuesday 13 September 2011 4:09:34 pm - 2 replies

It seems like the wildcard search in ezfind is not working properly for the title attribute. Here's an example...

When you search for "fetch" here on

you get a lot of results that have the word "fetch" in the title.

But when you search for "fetch*":

you get the results that have "fetch" in the text but not in title.


P:S. This is not related only to, I found this problem on one of my sites too.

After further investigation, I found out that this happens for ezstring and ezkeyword datatypes. (at least on my site)

Anyone has any idea what could be the problem?

Hello Marko

This all depends how ezfind is configured, and you are probbaly running an older version of ez find, or upgraded with the older setting still in place.

In the newer/latest version of ezfind, you can configure various analysis options for datatypes and its Solr field mappings. The text Solr fields are the ones that are suited for wildcard searches.
