Description Borgx 2006-03-09 03:20:08 UTC
Can you implement search using LIKE condition in special:allpages? So, instead
of "Display pages starting at", it would be "Display pages with title like".

So, enter search condition "%hockey%" will returns:
- 2000 Women's Hockey Olympic Qualifier
- 2001 Men's Champions Challenge (field hockey)
- ...
- Hockey
- Hockey (disambiguation)
- Hockey Canada
- ...

Too slow; trawling though millions of page records with no index is unreasonably expensive.
Use the search for general searching.
