Global Tag Searches

Q1: Can we search by Global Tags?

Q2:(Urgent): Can the user search by "and" or "or" statements. For example if we build the custom directory for housing videos, and we have a search box and someone enters "hospital integrations" does it search by "and" or "or". So will that search just bring back video Can the user put quotes into the search box? Is there any good examples of this?

Q3: If we were not using tags.... Could we decide what other fields to search for JUST in the custom directory?

Thanks

What about case sensitivity? Are searches case sensitive by default?

You can search Global Tags with a tags search box.
Go to Green > Layouts > filter by Tags > press the "Add a new module layout" button > you should see one for search.

This search is character sensitive. Example:

- searching for "swimming" will show results for "swimming"
- searching for "volleyball" will show results for "volleyball"
- searching for "swimming volleyball" will show results for "swimming volleyball"

Tagging is not best for and/or searches due to the character sensitivity above. A better solution may be to use the regular search boxes found in your module layouts when adding a custom module (search1 and search2 by default).

Another option is to use the text area (old classifications) tagging field. To add this field go to Green > Toolbar > edit your custom module > click the fields subtab > add a new field > choose Field type - Index (tags) and Input type - textarea
