Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am trying to search for [jquery-*] so I type that into the search bar:

part uno

And then I press Enter:


What happened?

Instead of going to:*
It went to:

Which displays no results, but yet still has the jQuery tag wiki.

The same things happens when you search for other tag wildcards as well.

This was supposedly fixed: Searching for a tag containing * breaks the site (but I guess not to the fullest extent of the law....)

Hmm, that would likely explain this question. – Tim Stone Jun 20 '12 at 19:03
@TimStone no that has always been an issue. it has to do with ASP and its extensions. Can't put .dll at the end of the URL – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jun 20 '12 at 19:08
No, the issue there is that search throws out the * and synonimizes .dll to dll, and is unrelated to the problem you're describing (that problem is why that synonymn exists, however) – Tim Stone Jun 20 '12 at 19:12

Seems to me that this works as expected now.
