How do I search for something?
The simplest way to search is to use the global search bar at the top of every page. This will allow you to search all available content types. If you want to use a more advanced search, you can use the Advanced Search option.
Advanced Search Operators
There are various search operators that will work when you search (you can of course use multiple operators in a single query)...
ANDThe AND operator allows you to search for documents that must contain multiple keywords.
ORThe OR operator allows you to search for documents that contain at least one keyword.
NOTThe NOT operator allows you to search for documents that contain at least one keyword, not not others.
GroupGrouping allows you to group keywords together with various other operators.
PhraseWrapping keywords in quotes will allow you to search for literal phrases.
ProximityYou can specify a proximity search that tells the search engine that you only want documents if a keyword is within xx words of another keyword. In the example below, we only care about results that have the word "hello" within 10 words of the word "world".
QuorumQuorum matching is a bit of fuzzy logic with your search. In the example below, the query is asking for documents that have at least 2 of the 4 words contained in them.
Strict OrderIf you only want search results that contain documents with a certain word before another word, you can do so with the strict order operator.
Exact FormTo search for exact forms of keywords, you can do so with this operator.
Start & End OperatorsThe start and end operator allows you to find documents that start or end with something specific.
