Editing Pages

Searching

When you enter text in the wiki search... box near the top right of each page, you can either try to go to the page by clicking the Go button, or do a search by clicking the Search button. Pressing Enter is equivalent to clicking the Go button.

  • Go will attempt to go directly to an article whose name matches the text you entered. If no exact match can be found (either actual page titles or redirect page titles), then Go is equivalent to Search.
  • Search will search the wiki for the text you entered. On the search results page, you will see first links to pages where the title matches the search text, followed by a group of links to pages where the content matches the search text.

If you are searching for a phrase, such as "out of unit", it is helpful to enclose the phrase in double quotes to limit the results to pages where those words appear in that order.

General help on searching can be found at the Meta-wiki Search Help page.

Google

You can use Google or other search engines to search the wiki as well. These powerful search engines can give you more power and flexibility than the built-in wiki search.

For example, if you want to find everything on the site containing the phrase "out of unit" you could do a Google search as follows:

"out of unit" site:https://tech.lds.org/wiki
