Basic search The search tool finds pages that contain all the words you are searching for. The words can be anywhere on the page.
FindinSite-CD ignores all punctuation characters in your search text.
Word stemming
and synonyms
Searching for throw will also match the words throws, thrower, throwers, ...
Common mis-spellings and regional variations are also matched, so teh will also find the, and color will also find colour and vice versa.
Put text in 'single quotes' if you do not want word stemming or synonyms.
Letter case Use single quotes to match capitals eg: 'Mexico'.
Adjacent words Use double quotes to match adjacent words eg: "mexico city".
Punctuation characters have the same effect, so is equivalent to "sales phdcc com".
These searches may take longer.
Logical searches Use and, or, not and parentheses ( ) to do logical searches.
To find the words and, or or not put them in "double quotes".
A basic search for swiss cheese is equivalent to swiss and cheese.
Wild cards Use ? to match exactly one character and * to match any number of characters. For example, mexic? and mex* both match the word mexico.
