API V2.0 Partial word search

Postby k_zeon » Thu Jan 11, 2018 11:13 am

Hi. Please could someone advise if its possible to search for a TV show using a partial word search

ie 'Teen W' finds nothing, so have to use 'Teen Wolf'.

Is it poss to do something like 'Teen W%'

tks

It's not supported and most likely will not be added. Multiple languages makes it far too confusing.
Please don't PM me. Post in the forums instead unless there is a very good reason for a PM or I won't respond.

This is an awful shame, partial word search is fairly fundamental in any search concept. It wasn't obvious to me that the search would only match on entire words, and isn't mentioned here.
