Advanced searching

Post by Support » Mon Jun 12, 2017 2:20 pm

The basics for searching are explained in this topic.
Here we explain more advanced searching.

The features below are valid for each search field in MegaSearch.

Exclude search results with specific words
To exclude search results containing a specific work then enter the word in the search field with a ! (exclamation mark) or - (dash) in front of the word.

For example: You want to search for pictures with cars, in any colour but red then use the search phrase:
"jpg cars -red" or "jpg cars !red" (don't use a space between the mark and the word)

AND / OR operators
You can also use and/or operators in your search phrases (between parentheses)**.

Example 1: You want to search for pictures with cars, but only red OR blue cars then use the search phrase:
"jpg cars (red || blue)" or "jpg cars (red OR blue)"

Example 2: You want to search for pictures containing green convertible cars then use the search phrase:
"jpg cars (green && convertible)" or "jpg cars (green AND convertible)"
or just "jpg cars green convertible" because AND is the default operator.

** The AND / OR operators must be uppercase letters and between parentheses.
