Example producing HTML results
Example of field searching
||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.
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.
||Use single quotes to match capitals eg: 'Mexico'.
||Use double quotes to match adjacent words eg: "mexico city".
Punctuation characters have the same effect, so firstname.lastname@example.org is equivalent to "sales phdcc com".
These searches may take longer.
||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.
||Use ? to match exactly one character and * to match
any number of characters. For example, mexic? and mex* both match
the word mexico.
