How to search the Community Wiki

Unofficial Content

You can search for any given text or even for specific property values within the Community Wiki. Basic search patterns are:

  • all of the words: "data selector and data provider"
  • exact phrase: "Data Providers"
  • at least one of the words: "provider" OR "selector"
  • wildcards: per*
  • fuzzy words: geneus~
  • grouping words: (selector OR provider) AND NOT data
  • inclusion/exclusion: search "parm -event" and it finds the parts where a "parm" exists and where no "event" appears.

Check the following link to know additional options to search.

  • Type: you can search for a specific page type, the available options are: Article, Image, File, Category, Template, Talk, Group or Toc.  
  • Status: if you want to look for a page status, the available options are: Open, Closed or ToDelete.
  • Owner: you can also search for a page owner of a wiki page.
  • User: or for the last user who saved a page.
  • Category: search for pages within a specific category name.
  • Viewstatus: page viewstatus, Public or Private, is another value you can add to your inquiry.
