Tiki uses the asterisk "*" as wildcard symbol that broadens a search by finding words that start with the same letters.
Example: Home* will find objects that contain a term starting with "Home" like "HomePage", "Home", "Homework", etc.
By default, all search terms are optional. It behaves like an OR logic. Objects that contain the more terms are rated higher in the results and will appear first. For example,wiki forumwill find:
You can use AND or OR or NOT also to do a boolean search. Example: wiki and forum will find objects with both terms. Example:wiki or forumwill find objects with one of the term.
Use parenthesis ( ) to group terms into subexpressions. Example:wiki and (forum blog)will find objects that containwikiandforumor that containwikiandblogin any order.
Use double quotes ( "" ) around a phrase to find terms in the exact order, next to each other. Example:"Alex Bell"will not findBell AlexorAlex G. BellbutAlex Bells.
