     1= Using Search = 
     3Trac has a built-in search engine to allow finding occurrences of keywords and substrings in wiki pages, tickets and changeset descriptions. 
     5Using the Trac search facility is straightforward and its interface should be familiar to most users. 
     7Apart from the [search: Search module], you will also find a small search field above the navigation bar at all time. It provides convenient access to the search module from all pages. 
     9== "Quickjump" searches == 
     10For quick access to various project resources, the quick-search field at the top of every page can be used to enter a [TracLinks wiki link], which will take you directly to the resource identified by that link. 
     12For example: 
     14 * ![42] -- Opens change set 42 
     15 * !#42 -- Opens ticket number 42 
     16 * !{1} -- Opens report 1 
     17 * /trunk -- Opens the browser for the `trunk` directory 
     19== Advanced == 
     21=== Disabling Quickjumps === 
     22To disable the quickjump feature for a search keyword - for example when searching for occurences of the literal word !TracGuide - begin the query with an exclamation mark (!). 
     24=== Search Links === 
     25From the Wiki, it is possible to link to a specific search, using 
     26`search:` links: 
     27 * `search:?q=crash` will search for the string "crash"  
     28 * `search:?q=trac+link&wiki=on` will search for "trac" and "link"  
     29   in wiki pages only
