Tip: Searching common terms[deprecated]

Post by rray » 28 Dec 2011, 18:21

Since we've just implemented a new search back-end, this info can be considered deprecated - HB

The forum search engine deems some terms such as "compound", "node" or "render" too "common" to be searched for O:-)

Inspired by a tip that Stephen recently posted here, you can cheat around this by using wildcard searches such as:

rende* nod* compoun*

Note that wildcards have to be at the beginning or end of each search term.
