Wildcard Search Web Part and Document Link Handler added to Search Community Toolkit

Posted Monday, December 8, 2008 3:31 PM by CoreyRoth

I am excited to announce that, the Wildcard Search Web Part and the Document Link Handler for Enterprise Search have been added to the Search Community Toolkit.  I thought both of these tools are a great fit to the toolkit since they are so useful in extending the functionality of Enterprise Search.  If you are not familiar with them, the Wildcard Search Web Part is a drop-in replacement for the CoreResultsWebPart which allows wildcard searching.  The Document Link Handler gives you the ability to link directly to a document's folder, document library, properties, as well as a link to editing the document.  I am glad these tools have been added and look forward to developing more tools to give back to the SharePoint community.  If you haven't checked out the SCT yet, give it a look.  There are some great tools that really allow you to enhance a user's search experience.
