What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/jquery-*
It went to: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/jquery-

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
