Boolean Operators in Search


(Hannah Fordham) #1

I don’t know whether this is just me, but often there are a few categories that the answer to my post could be in, and I’d prefer not to search the whole forum but I’d also prefer not to search each category at a time.

I’ve got around this for my own searches by just sucking it up and searching the whole forum then manually filtering through my results, however I’m starting to look at good ways to improve discoverability of topics for other users as we’re getting a lot of duplicate threads and people are clearly struggling to find things using the search tools available (although the full page search results now are omg amazing :heart:).

Ideally I’d like to be able to use AND, OR, and NOT in any combination (potentially XOR but struggling to see a use case for that…). Is that a thing that’d be useful to other people?
