Problem with search 'like'


I have noticed that after updating to latest version of EpiFind, I can't find any results using 'like'. For example, let's have a phrase "abcdef", then when I use UnifiedSearch with phrase "abc", it will not return any result. 

Can anybody confirm it?

Hi Damian,

Have you rebuilt the indexes after the Find package update?

Yes, we have reindexing job running every night.

Problem has been solved. It seems that we never had wildcard implementation.

After adding implementation provided by Joel Abrahamsson (I can't add here a link) wildcard queries started working. I might be that somebody changed implementation by accident some time ago, but nobody noticed that. 

@Episerver: thanks for support.

Just want to say that wildcard search is extremely heavy on Find backend, so if you are using it a lot, you can bring down your Find subscription

We have around 50k search requests per day. Is it a lot in that case? Will it be heave even if it's running only for title, not body of each page? What do you mean by bringing down our subscription? Will it work slower becase of the load, or service might be not available at all?
