Running a basic search
Searching CEE is similar to searching Google or Yahoo. To find items containing a particular word, type that word into the Search field and hit Go or Search.
For other common search types, follow these guidelines:
- To find items containing a phrase, type the phrase inside double quote marks.
- To find items where the word "hot" and the word "cold" both appear, type "hot AND cold" (without the quote marks).
- To find items where either the word "hot" or the word "cold" appears, type "hot OR cold" (without the quote marks).
- To search for items with words similar to your search terms, add the tilde symbol ~ at the end of a word. For example, to search for a term similar in spelling to "roam," search for roam~. This search will find terms like foam and roams.
- To search with a wildcard character, use the "?" symbol. For example, to find items containing either "text" or "test," type in "te?t" (without quotes). When a wildcard might represent multiple characters, use the "*" symbol instead of the question mark.
- The wildcard character doesn't work if it is the first character in the search term.
- Your search results won't always include the very latest items you created. Items show up in search results only after they have been indexed. Your site administrator determines how often the site is indexed.
- The case (capital or small letters) of your search terms does not matter. If you enter the word "dip," you get pages that contain "DIP" and "Dip" as well as "dip."
