Search Help

Line: 28 to 28
  • If you want to search for a semicolon or an exclamation point, escape them with a leading backslash, like \!shampoo
  • Example: To search for all topics that contain "SOAP", "WSDL", a literal "web service", but not "shampoo",
    enter this: soap;wsdl;web service;!shampoo

Search Attachments

Every web has a WebSearchAttachments topic to search for attachments by name. Specify:

  • Attachment name. Wildcards can be used, such as *.doc for all Word documents
  • Topic name. Wildcards can be used, such as T* for all topics starting with 'T'

Note that this does not search content in attachments. For this a search engine such as TWiki:Plugins.SearchEngineKinoSearchAddOn is needed.


Formatted Searches

You can embed a nicely formatted search in a topic by using the %SEARCH{}% variable described in VarSEARCH. Searches can be of different types; among others, TWiki offers keyword search, regular expression search and a flexible SQL-like query language.
