Description Kris Klindworth 2007-03-23 21:20:45 UTC
Currently if the entire hostname of an external link is not entered in the search field of the 
LinkSearch extension then no results come back.

For example, this query for[1] will return many links.  However if I searched for 
just bugzilla [2] then I would get no results.  Would it be possible to enhance the extension to enable 
searching for substrings like in this [2] example?

Too inefficient for DB.
