How current are the search results?

  • Our search index is updated every 5 minutes.

Is there anything else I should know?

  • You can’t start a search with words that begin with the * or ? character
  • It will match whole words
  • It is case insensitive
  • If you don’t know the whole word, you can end it with the * character and it will match words beginning with the text preceding the *
  • This FAQ is for the site wide search, if you are searching within a table (like the Order History Page), then that search will be just against the information in that table.
