Some search tips to help you get the best results
- Check spelling! Make sure your search terms are spelled correctly.
- Use phrases. The search will return more refined results from a phrase than from a single word. To search for a phrase, place double quotation marks around the search term, e.g. "Edinburgh City Council".
- Add + (plus sign) in front of words or phrases that must appear in results.
- Add - (minus sign) in front of words or phrases that must not appear in results.
- By default, search terms are not case sensitive.
- The search engine ignores “stop-terms”, which are common words like it, and, the, that etc.
- Special characters like #, !, $, %, |, & etc. are allowed in search terms.
- Searching can be expanded with a wildcard (*). Adding a * to the end of a term will match all endings. For example: “test*” will match “tests”, “tested”, “testing” etc. Stop-terms are included in wildcard searches.
- These options can be placed in any order in front of the query:
- c: for a case sensitive search.
- w: to match whole words only.
- st: to include stop-terms.
- all: to add + in front of all terms.
For example, will do a case sensitive search that will return results only where the phrases “Deed of Conditions” and “Housing Association” are both present.
