This is already implemented in the DokuWiki core (since always or at least a very long time). What does this plugin do differently? — Anika HenkeAnika Henke

E.g if you look for surr each word you don't get any result. You have to look for surr* each word to get some results. With this plugin, the first case will return the same result as *surr* *each* *word* without need to write all asterisks — David Roydavidroyapp

I'm not sure if I understand correctly. From reading the description I thought you would need to add asterisks in the search field and this plugin would do the partial search. From your reply do you mean to say that this plugin “adds” asterisks in the background without the user needing to add them themselves to the search field? If that is the case the description should be improved. — Anika HenkeAnika Henke

You're right Anika, the plugin “adds” the asterisks internally and the plugin's description was not clear. I've just changed it. Thx. — David Roydavidroyapp
