Smarter search engine - use LIKE instead of = (equals)

Could you modify the default search function to use the "LIKE" query instead of the "equals" query.

example: To search for "Johnathon Thomas Smith" you have to type in "Johnathon Thomas Smith". "John Smith" won't find the record and "Johnathon Smith" won't find it either.

If you used the "LIKE '%John%' AND LIKE '%smith%' in your query, it will find it.

This would make searching so much more powerful.

Hi Scott, 

Thank you for writing to us.  

We currently do not have this, although thank you for the suggestion. I will be sure to forward it to the appropriate department for consideration.

Please let me know if you have any other ideas as we do value such input from our users.

Best Regards, 

Esther / MyHeritage Team
