Advanced Search Options

Search Terms
Single term Single word such as "research" or "analytics"
Phrase Group of words surrounded by double quotes, such as "custom CSS"
To match the words exactly

Add "double quote marks" around a term or phrase

Note: Using only one double quote mark, either just at the beginning or end, causes a search error.

To form a more complex query Combine multiple terms with Boolean operators
Boolean Operators
  • Boolean searches help link or unlink search queries.
  • Case-sensitive and require capitalization.
  • If you have more than two words, Boolean searches help refine the search.
OR operator
  • Displays one query or the other.
  • Searching with multiple words (not a phrase in quotes) always searches with OR operator.
  • More relevant search results are boosted if all of the words in the search are in the result.
    Example: Editor OR Table
AND operator
  • Only shows articles that include all of the words in the query.

  • Searching with phrases acts similarly to using AND operator.
    Example: Editor AND Table

NOT operator
  • Removes next word from search results.

  • This helps when you have a large population of results and know you would like to strip out a specific subset of results.
    Example: Editor NOT Table

Boost Terms
  • When searching with multiple terms, you can boost a specific term to give it higher priority in the search.
  • Higher the boost value, the more relevance is given to the term.
  • ^: A query like "page editor" can have either "page" or "editor" boosted, depending on where ^ is appended.
    Example: page editor^2 or page^10 editor
Grouping Terms
  • Multiple clauses can be searched using parenthesis, similar to a math equation. This can be useful if you want to control the Boolean logic for a query.
  • ( ): Group words with parenthesis and use Boolean operators to separate them. For example: (mindtouch OR mt4) AND advanced. This searches for either "mindtouch" or "mt4" and "advanced" in the query.
Escape Special Characters

To escape special characters, use "\" before the character.

+ - && || ! ( ) { } ] ^ " ~ *  : \:

Example: \(1\+1\)\:2
