Using Advanced Search

You can perform an advanced search using either the link http://localhost:8080/searchblox/adv_search.jsp, or the advanced search link available in the top right-hand corner of the basic search results page. Advanced search allows you to search with the following options:

  • Search with all words entered
  • Search using an exact phrase
  • Search with at least one word
  • Search for results without a word
  • Search for results based on language
  • Search for files with a specific format
  • Specify the time period (3 months, 6 months and year)
  • Search for results based on the occurrence of the search term in the document (title, content, keyword, description and URL)
  • Specify the number of results per page
    These options also can be given in the URL (query) explicitly.
