The search allows you to search for words in the website’s content. You can specify multiple words, and they will all be searched for, and the page that provides the highest hit count returned.
As this website provides multiple content types, the results are grouped by content type as well. If you only wish to search through certain types of content, you can modify the behaviour of this search using the ‘Restrict search to’ checkboxes below.
To specify that a word is required in the pages that are returned, place a ‘+’ in front of it like this ‘+walk’.
You can also use wildcards, so ‘walk*’ will match ‘walk’, ‘walking’, ‘walker’, ‘walkable’ and ‘walkability’… Alright you got me, I made the last ones up.
Searches are not case sensitive, regardless of how you type them all letters will be searched for in lower case
Words excluded from the search
Some words which commonly occur are filtered out by the searching process, these are commonly called ‘noisewords’. Examples are ‘a, at, and, are, as, ask’, and the list goes on. Words shorter than 2 letters are also filtered from the search index.
These words will never be matched when specified, even if they appear in the node you are searching for.
