Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Searching.
There is a seach facility located in a block on the left hand side of every MoodleDocs page. You can enter your search text and then click either 'Go' or 'Search'.
If you select Go, or press Enter, it first looks for an article with exactly the given string as its title, and if one is found immediately goes to the indicated article. If Go fails to find an article, it then automatically executes Search.
Search is a full-text search for the given words listing Articles with titles that match first, then articles with matches in the main body of the text.
Note that this search method currently ignores words of three letters or less.
Searching MoodleDocs and Moodle.org forums with Google

This search is powered by Google which has some unique search features but this means the results are not updated immediately when the content changes.

You can seach MoodleDocs from the search box in the Firefox browser by downloading a search plugin from here
Mac OS X Widget
