Wildcard Title Searches

I would like to be able to Search Titles Only using a wildcard. Entering condition* would reveal condition, conditioning, conditioner etc. This works searching within the postings but not on titles. There is still a bug in the search function that not only looks in the thread title, but also the posting titles. Would also like to see some filtering options when viewing the "New Posts" report.
Thank you,
Howard

In fact, wildcard searches are not supported by our search engine, both in "search titles only" and in "search posts text only" modes. Preventing next question, I don't know if they ever will be.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for getting back to me.

Wildcard searches are supported within the "Search Posts Text Only" option. Entering 'condition', does list messages containing it's derivatives. Here is an example:
Quote:
Most ( well many anyway) agree that NimH do not develop memory and therefore do not need to be discharged like Nicads before charging however very often they do need to be cycled (conditioned) a few times befor they develop maximun useable capacity.It really depends on the use they are being put to. I use AA Everyready Energinizers 2300 mA NimH in my Transmitters and just condition them by using. They always get better after a few cycles. I charge with a Triton at 300-400 mA(.03-.4A).

Interesting - I just tried to do a search of this thread using "condition*" and it only highlighted the words "condition".

Where did I go wrong?

hweird: did you notice that there is exact word "condition" in the post you cited? Sorry to disappoint you...

Yeah, I just tried cycl* and it came back as no matches.

But I agree with Howard, additional search options would be nice.
