This question already has an answer here:

There are favorite and ignored tags in Preferences. They need to explicitly list your tags. I would like to have wild char support here, so for example *PHP* will find PHP, PHP3, PHP4, PHPUnit, CakePHP and all other PHP tags.

  • Did you try this or that? – devnull Feb 24 '14 at 12:05
  • Adding *php* as a favourite seems to work. – George Duckett Feb 24 '14 at 12:07
  • I tried to add php*, but asterisk was silently removed. It looked to me, that I have to SELECT tag from offerred options. – Leos Literak Feb 24 '14 at 12:47
  • @devnull This is something else. – Leos Literak Feb 24 '14 at 12:51
  • to down-voter: Why? This feature did not work to me, because keyboard is not supported correctly. When I wrote this question, I browsed offered questions and this question was not there. So blame SO related search. – Leos Literak Feb 24 '14 at 12:54

This feature is already supported. Have you tried it? Just edit your favorite tags and add a tag with wildcard e.g. enter php* (as you said):

This works fine.

  • I tried to add this tag with keyboard (enter key) and it saved PHP only. Now I tried to CLICK button ADD and it saved my filter. – Leos Literak Feb 24 '14 at 12:50
