When searching for content there are two options available:

  • Exact word searching - only words matching the typed search string appear in the results. For example, the search string site only returns instances where the complete word is site, and ignores instances of sitemap or website.
  • Partial word searching - search results find any instances of the string as it was typed, and any instances where the string is a fragment of a word. For example, where the search string is site, any instances of site, sitemap, or website is returned.

By default, the Web Help templates are set to enable exact word matching and display the check box for selecting partial word matching.

You can set the default search behavior in the index.htm file:
