Finding Stuff on our Website
The website provides several ways to find information. The two primary ones include:
- The Navigation Menus
- The Search capability
The Navigation menus were covered in the April Monthly Summary. This issue will focus on the search capability.
In the upper right-hand corner of every screen, there is a symbol looking like a magnifying glass. Click on that symbol, and enter any word or phrase. Some things to remember:
- Search words are case insensitive (i.e. bala, Bala, BALA, etc all return the same results)
- If you enter more than one word, all words must be present. For example, if you enter “short” (without the quotes) you will get all articles that have “short” in the text; if you enter “short term”, the results must include “short’ and “term”.
- Any single word returns results if the characters in that word are found somewhere in he article – “bala” will return results for Bala, balanced, balaclava, etc. If you are interested in articles about the town of Bala, include the search term in quotes and leave a space after the search text – “bala “
There is yet another way to search if you are looking through any of the Publications (Township Watch, Articles, Yearbooks, etc).. We have “tagged” many articles regarding its content. To search articles by “tag”, click on the “Publications” menu, and click on the “down arrow” where it says “All Tags” A list of tags should appear. Select the one you want, and click Submit. Of course, you can also enter the search term in the Search Box just above the tags.
