Enter a word or a phrase to search for in the box below, change any pf the options as required, and click "Search".
- Search is case insensitive by default (i.e. "evil" is the same as "Evil"). You can change this.
- Search is for whole words only by default (e.g. "moral" will only find "moral" and not "morality" or "moralize"). You can change this. Or expand a search with a wildcard ( * ): adding a * to the end of a term will match all endings (e.g. "moral*" will match "moral", "morality" and "moralize" once you have de-selected Whole Words Only).
- By default, ALL the words or terms in the search query must appear in a resulting page. You can change this to search for ANY of the words.
- Once a search has generated results, there is an option to "Search with Results" to narrow the search further.
- Stop-terms (very common words found on most pages, like "it", "and", "the", "that", "religion", "atheism", etc) are disallowed by default. You can change this.
- Add + in front of terms/phrases that MUST appear in results.
- Add - in front of terms/phrases that must NOT appear in results.
- The default scope of the search includes the body text, title and meta-description of each page (with the title receiving most weight). You can change this.
- Results are listed by default in order of the number of matches found in each document (rather than the "score", which is the percentage of matching characters). You can change this.
- Weights can be applied to influence the results score by adding a number (from 20 to 10000) in angle brackets in front of terms or phrases (e.g. "common <200>consent" will give 200 times more weight to "consent" than to "common" when it comes to ordering the results).
- Special characters (e.g. # ! $ % | &, etc) are allowed.
- Accented characters (e.g. ä ß ç é ñ, etc) are treated as English equivalents.
- Spelling used is generally Canadian standard, a hybrid of English (e.g. "behaviour", "centre", "defence", etc) and American (e.g. "realize", "hypothesize", "dialogue", etc). Try alternative spellings if necessary, or variations on hyphenation and spacing (e.g. "fine-tuned" instead of "fine tuned", "non-belief" instead of "nonbelief", etc).
