Our site search feature, Relevanssi, was designed for WordPress, which we’ve been using as our main CMS since 2007. All posts and pages created since then are included in our default search index.

  • Relevanssi Premium has support for in-query Boolean operators. Relevanssi uses + and – for the operators: cats -dogs and cats +kittens.
  • In regular expressions, ^ can be used to match the beginning of the line and $ to match the end of the line. For example, ^ban will match banana, but not urban, while ban$ matches urban, but not banana. These are called anchoring operators.
  • Wildcards
    • The * operator replaces zero or more characters, so searching for w*ess would match “wilderness”, “witness”, “WordPress” and also “wess”.
    • The ? operator matches exactly one character, so searching for gr?y would match “grey” or “gray”, but not “gravy” or “groovy”.
    • These operators only work within words. Searching for *ess or gra? will not have the expected results.

Older content and other search options

Most of our older content was migrated to WordPress, but not all of it. However, our Resources page contains links to our publications and reports back to the 90s.

You can also find additional content with Google site search by going to google.com and searching for site:gilbane.com. For example to search for “multilingual” use site:gilbane.com multilingual. For more sophisticated use of google site search see: https://rankmath.com/kb/google-site-search/
