Full-text searching supports a number of options, listed below. You can combine these to specify your search more precisely.
|search for these words||For basic searching of one or more words anywhere in the texts, just type them separated by spaces. All words longer than two characters are used.|
|+search +for these words||The previous example would also match "information" because it contains "for". To force exact matching of a word, use the plus sign.|
|+search -engine||Use the minus sign if there are particular exact words you don't want included in the search.|
|"search engine"||To search for a particular phrase, use double quotes around it.|
|user:Kim||To search for texts by a particular user, prefix a word from their name with "user:".|
|userid:6||If you know the user id of a particular user, you can search for them like this.|
|subject:assessment||To search for a word within the subject or title of a text only, prefix the word with "subject:".|
For advanced searching, press the search button without typing anything in the words field - you will see a complete form that makes it easier to do advanced searches.
