Wildcat characters on search. Do we have them?
« on: December 21, 2011, 03:12:51 pm »

Hi, sorry for so basic question, but I didn't find the answer after seraching all docs and forum...
Can we use wild characters * or ? on search? Documentation mentions them only when searching for a user, but not in a general album search. Could it be that wildcat characters are not supported at search???  For example, '?' does not work for "any character".
Thanks

Wildcard '?' isn't supported out of the box, but '*' is.

If you want to use '?' as wildcard, open include/search.inc.php, find
Code: [Select]
$search_string = strtr($search_string, array('_' => '\_', '%' => '\%', '*' => '%'));and replace with
Code: [Select]
$search_string = strtr($search_string, array('_' => '\_', '%' => '\%', '*' => '%', '?' => '_'));

Thanks a lot Andre! The change works OK. I would suggest to make it permanent as it helps a lot, specially when searching on text with special national characters.
I see that '*' includes string with blanks, that is will find a string with blanks inside. This is news to me, but it probably should work this way. You can close this. Thanks.
