Description: basic search
The simplest way to find interesting content is entering words you want to search:
Will search for words piotr and gabryjeluk in all Wikidot sites you have access to (including all public and those who you are member of).
- Results with piotr AND gabryjeluk are on the top.
- Pages with piotr OR gabryjeluk are below the best matches.
Search within some sites only
Append site:site1,site2,site3 to the search query.
piotr gabryjeluk site:www,community,handbook
Search in title
You can search for some word in title of a page:
If you want to search for a phrase, try:
If you want to search for more than one word, but not a phrase:
Search in tags
You can search for pages that were given some tags:
This searches for pages having wikidot and/or community in their tags. Pages having both tags appear higher in the results lists.
tag: instead of tags: is also OK.
Make a word obligatory
If you prefix a word with a + only results matching this word appear in the results. Normally, after the best matches, there are also shown documents that match a part of your query, from the most relevant to the least (matching only one of words entered). If you prefix some word with + it becomes a filter. No page nor thread without this word appear on the list.
This example shows how to search for words piotr and gabryjeluk but show only results having piotr. First on list appear pages having both piotr and gabryjeluk words, then only piotr, but no page with gabryjeluk and no piotr is listed.
Site clause always behaves like a filter, so you don't have to prefix it with a +.
You can place an asterisk after 3 or more letters in any search word, like:
Both are OK as long as you have at least 3 letters before the first *.
Mix it up!
