Simple Tips for More Exact Searches
Searches are case insensitive. Searching for "Fur" will match the lowercase "fur" and uppercase "FUR".
By default, all searches are accent insensitive as well, but administrators can change this setting. Accent sensitivity relates to Latin characters like õ.
Including or excluding words:
To make sure that a specific word is always included in your search topic, place the plus (+) symbol before the key word in the search box. To make sure that a specific word is always excluded from your search topic, place a minus (-) sign before the keyword in the search box.
Example: To find recipes for cookies with oatmeal but without raisins, try "recipe cookie +oatmeal -raisin".
Expand your search using wildcards (*):
By typing an * within a keyword, you can match up to four letters.
Example: Try wish* to find wish, wishes, or wishful.
