Understanding Search and using the Wildcard

The Search engine is quite powerful and may return more results than you were expecting - however if you understand how it works, you can refine or broaden your criteria to return the desired results.

Typing multiple words will return any activities that contain any of those words, in any order. The search results should, however, list the results in order of relevance.

For example, typing 'Frozen Pizza' would located 'Frozen Chicken Pizza', Frozen Cheese Pizza' and further down the list of results, it may show activities with 'pizza' only or 'frozen' only.

Including words in speech marks " " will refine the results by performing a 'string' search. For example, typing "Frozen Pizza" would only return activities containing the words "Frozen pizza", in that order, with no words in-between.

If necessary use the wildcard symbol (*) within the search term to broaden the results. To refine the results, add search text in speech marks.

Example: Typing *Tea* would locate 'Earl Grey Tea' and also 'Teatime Chocolate Biscuits'
