Some other hints or tricks!

  1. Be sure to scroll down to see each web's search results when searching multiple webs
  2. Myth: You do not need to use a wikiword to search. Just type what you are looking for.
  3. Do not use punctuation marks between or in words. For example drop the accent marks in a French name
  4. If your spelling is off you will not get the search results you are looking for.
    1. Try searching part or parts of the word(s) you are sure of the spelling. You do not need to search only for compete words.
    2. Hint if you know the web but not the spelling, try looking under the letter of the alphabet.
  5. There is a normal index found just above the search box on the left sidebar, General topics other than cultivars such as "cultivation" can be found there.
