Search Basics


Search is a convenient way to quickly locate items that you are interested in. Enter your keywords and click the Search button. Search will return up to 100 results that match your keywords.

The simpler your keywords, the more likely you will have a match.

Search does not understand boolean types, so entering "hike and yellowstone" will search for "hike yellowstone".

Common words such as "a", "if", "and", "the" and punctuation are removed. Finally, search is case insensitive; "BLUE WIDGET" and "blue widget" are the same.
