General Search Tips

  • Default search content: is the body, title, and meta-description.
  • Stop-terms are common terms like "it and the that...".
  • Special characters like #!$%|&..etc. are allowed.
  • ISO Latin-1 characters like ..etc. are treated as english equivalents.
  • Phrases: use double-quotes around search term. ("search")
  • Add + in front of terms/phrases that must appear in results.
  • Add - in front of terms/phrases that must not appear in results.
  • The + checkbox adds a plus in front of all terms/phrases for convenience.
  • The score is the percentage of matching characters in a document.

Advanced Search Tips

  • Searching can be expanded with a wildcard (*).
    • Adding a * to the end of a term will match all endings.
    • For example: 'test*' will match 'tests' 'tested' 'testing' etc.
    • Stop-terms are included in wildcard searches.
  • Weights can be applied by adding <2-10000> in front of terms or phrases.
    • For example:
    • <100>term none <500>"a phrase"
    • The query above will weight scores 100 and 500 times greater for documents containing 'term' and 'a phrase', respectively.
    • The scores for documents containing only 'none' will remain unchanged. The weight must be in the range of 2-10000.
    • Add + (inclusion) in front of weights. The results will be sorted by weighted scores.
