General and Advanced Search Tips

Please note. Documents in the Library + Service Manuals are not searchable by this search engine.

General Search Tips
  • Use double quotes around phrases to 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 default search content is the body of the page.
  • The score is the percentage of matching characters in a document.
  • ISO Latin-1 characters like ..etc. are treated as english equivalents.
  • Special characters like #!$%|&..etc. are allowed.
  • Stop-terms are common terms like "it and the that...".

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:

    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.

  • The following options can be placed in any order in front of the query:

      c: for a case sensitive search.
      w: to match whole words only.
      st: to include stop-terms.
      all: to add + in front of all terms/phrases.
      match: score: date: size: title: or name: for the sorting choice.
      5-100: for the number of results to display per page.
      b: to search the body (full text) of documents.
      t: to search the title of documents.
      u: to search the url of documents.
      l: to search the links in documents.
      n: to search for the name of a person posting
         (uncheck other "Search Content" options)
         to find all posts by Name alone.
      pt: to search the titles of posts
         (uncheck other "Search Content" options)
         to find all posts by title alone.
         Note posts do not have titles before page 1808.

    For example:

    The query above will perform a case sensitive search for 'term' and 'a phrase' in the body, title, and meta-description of documents. 15 results will be displayed per page and the results will be sorted by file size.
