With the MoinMoin search engine the same search patterns are allowed in the search and title search input fields as in the parameters for the FullSearch and the PageList macros.

  • There may be several search term seperated by white space
    • Terms are combined by default with an AND operation - only pages containing all search term are returned
    • Double or single quotes may be used to include white space into search terms.
  • - before a search term means NOT - pages containing this term are excluded from the result

  • regex:TERM is treated as regular expression

  • title:TERM searches in pages that their titles match TERM

    • Normal search terms do search the titles, too. Matches in titles get more weight as matches in pages.
  • case:TERM searches case sensitive

  • linkto:TERM searches for links to TERM

  • title:, regex:, linkto: and case: may be used in combination in one search term

    • these modifiers may be abbreviated to any length: e. g. re:, t:, reg:, cas:, l:

    • - must be put before any other modifiers

  • or operator has a lower precedence than the implicit AND

  • Parentheses can be used for grouping
