Instructions for Advanced Search
Enter the terms to search for below. All terms must match, by default. In
addition, you can use the following modifiers, which must be capitalized:

- AND
- Both (all) terms or expressions must match.
- Example:
**cookie AND recipe** would return everything
containing both **cookie** and **recipe**.
- This is the default between adjacent terms.
- OR
- One of the terms or expressions must match.
- Example:
**cookie OR recipe** would return everything containing
either **cookie** or **recipe**.
- NOT
- Only the first and not the second term or expression must match.
- Example:
**cookie NOT recipe** would return everything talking
about cookies but **not** about recipes.
- ( ) (Parentheses)
- You can use parentheses to group words together into expressions.
- Example:
**(cookie OR brownie) recipe** would return everything
talking about either cookies or brownies, along with recipes.
- " " (Quotation marks)
- Quotation marks search for an exact phrase.
- Example:
**"cookie recipe"** would return only content that
used those two words in exactly that phrase.

Putting it all together, here's an example of a query you could make:

**("cookie recipe" OR "brownie recipe") NOT burned**

This would return everything with either the exact phrase "cookie recipe"
or "brownie recipe" but without the word *burned*.

Here are a couple more search modifiers that are a little more complex:

- NEAR
- The words must be within 10 words of each other in the document to
match.
- Example:
**cookie NEAR recipe** would return only only results
where the two words were no more than 10 words away from each other.
- You can adjust the distance by adding a forward slash followed by a
a number, as in
**cookie NEAR/5 recipe**.
- ADJ
- The words must be within 10 words of each other, and also must
appear in the same order as your search.
- Example:
**cookie ADJ recipe** would only give you results where
**cookie** came first and **recipe** followed by no more
than 10 words.
- Like NEAR, you can change the distance between words by adding a
forward slash and a number.
