Search

A search for more than one word will find pages that contain all of the words. Use quotation marks to search for a phrase. Also use quotes for text with punctuation or special characters. Searches are case insensitive.

To limit your search to a single group, enter the group name followed by a slash at the beginning of the search string (e.g., "PmWiki/" or "Site/"). To list all pages, enter a slash for the search.

Some special characters need to be enclosed in quotes, including the colon (:), equals sign (=), less than (<), single quote (') and double quote(").

For advanced searches, page list parameters (count, name, group, fmt, link, list, order, and trail) can be entered together with the search string.

Wild card characters: asterisk (*) represent zero or more characters and question mark (?) represent exactly one character.
