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.
