Search


The basic search function for my site for anyone who might need it, along with a explanation of the usable basic expressions given below. A search can be done on any page with the search magnifier icon in the main menu (far-right click it to reveal the search form), and main pages with the search form on the top-right column.

Boolean Search

Search allows the use of basic expressions (such as exact, and, not, or) in symbol form only ( “”  +   ). The basic use is “” quotes for exact phrases, + plus sign for text that must be found, and minus sign for text that must NOT be found.

It’s much easier to use than explain, try the symbols for yourself.

Example searches

"gold treasure" find posts with the exact phrase gold treasure

+gold +treasure find posts that have both words anywhere

-gold treasure find posts with treasure but do not have the word gold

-gold +treasure find posts with treasure but do not have the word gold

gold treasure find posts that have the word gold or the word treasure anywhere
