Using Search Effectively

From Octarus

This site has an advanced search engine that will let you search all public documents on the site. You can also search outside of this site to reach the other layers on the network. Each site is considered a layer, and can take a number value of 2-10 along with a lowercase number of a-z.


Enter key words and phrases and press Enter or Return or click the magnifying glass icon or Search or Go button. If a page has the same title as what you entered (or you use the Go button) you jump straight to that page. Searching for exact page name still brings up search result, not the page. Otherwise, it searches all pages on the wiki (with some restrictions, see below), and presents a list of articles that matched your search terms, or a message informing you that no page has all the key words and phrases.

Searching Specific Filetypes

You can search for specific files such as Images by clicking on the "Media" link under the search header. When you search for images, you are really searching the file name and description. To search for specific text, add a " mark to each end of the words you are trying to find for. By default, the search engine will try to search for matching text and display it at the top by relevance.
