Searching

From Gamepedia Help Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The quickest way to find information in Gamepedia Help Wiki is to look it up directly. Near the top right of every page there is a search box.

Enter your search terms and press Enter or click "Go" or "Search." If a page has the same title as what you entered, "Go" will take you straight to that page. Otherwise, it searches all pages on the wiki (with some restrictions, see below), and presents a list of articles that matched your search terms, or a message that no matches were found.

Restricting the search[edit | edit source]

If you click the “Search” button without filling in anything, you will be taken to “Special:Search” which gives you extra searching options (also available from any search results list)

You may find it useful to restrict a search to pages within a particular namespace e.g., only search within the User pages. Check the namespaces you require for this search.

By default, only the namespaces specified in your preferences will be searched. Logged-in users can change their preferences to specify the namespaces they want to search by default. This can be done by selecting and deselecting boxes in the ”search” section of user preferences.
