Wildcard Search

Wildcard Search

|Fess| supports single and multiple character wildcard search. Wildcard search performs indexed terms, not phrase.


To perform a single character wildcard search, use "?" symbol.


The above search looks for terms that match that with the single character replaced, such as text or test.

To perform a multiple character wildcard search, use "*" symbol.


Multiple character wildcard search looks for 0 or more characters, such as test, tests or tester.

You can also use the wildcard search in the middle of a term.



Wildcard search support terms, not phrase. If a word is indexed by bi-gram and so on, Wildcard search will not work properly. So, to use Wildcard search, a proper morphological analysis needs to be used.
