WHERE equivalent of "fieldname_keyword" search

Can someone please help me with the syntax for a WHERE clause that will return listings in an equivalent way to:

Contains keyword
Field value must contain keyword (case-insensitive)

The above is taken from: https://www.interactivetools.com/docs/cmsbuilder/viewer_search.html

The problem I am running into is that CMSB deprecates using the % sign in a WHERE clause (e.g. WHERE product LIKE %television%)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi Greg,

Did you put quotes for the like statement? For example: where product like "%television%".

Hi Leo,

Thank you for the message. Does the below now look correct?

  // load records from 'listings'
  list($listingsRecords, $listingsMetaData) = getRecords(array(
    'tableName'   => 'listings',
    'perPage'     => '10',
    'loadUploads' => true,
    'allowSearch' => false,
    'where' => product like "%television%"

Also, can you please tell me how to write a WHERE clause that works in the same way as the "fieldname_prefix" search type?

Thank you very much for the help!
