EPiServer Find Wildcard searching

This is a bit of a hidden feature in EPiServer Find. Typically when you want wildcard searching miscellaneous blogs will make us use the EPiServer UnifiedSearch. There is a much simpler solution than so.

public static class SearchExtensions
{
    public static IQueriedSearch<T> WildCardSearch<T>(this ITypeSearch<T> search, string query)
    {
        return search.For<T>(query, q => q.Query = string.Concat("*", query, "*"));
    }
}

Use it like this

var result = SearchClient.Instance.Search<FAQItem>()
                    .WildCardSearch(query)
                    .OrderByDescending(x => x.Name)
                    .FilterForVisitor()
                    .GetContentResult();
