      Description

      Right now when users type some search query (in the Document Tree or in the Search page) they have to know the syntax. However there's no hint message pointing to a help page.

      See attached example showing a potential WTF moment for users

      Another idea would that if no results are returned, then add a message in the suggest result for the user to use a wildcard ("*") and/or point them to the search page.
