Is there a plugin or another option to this as I find our regular users are not going to think in the logical way of including both the first and last name or might just know only one or the other. Can simple search be "fixed" to do partial queries like as one of the other posters mentioned, it used to in an older version?


Simple search didn't exist in an older version. Change your list to use advanced search.

You could edit the code I suppose to get it do as you desire though I'm sure.

thank you krileon.

Indeed making the change in the list configuration to advanced search solved it.

Advanced search still doesn't address the partial search problem for me. If I'm searching on city and can't remember if I need Newark or New York - I have to do two separate complete searches; a search for "new" will bring up nothing.
