This article provides an overview of MuseWiki's search feature, as well as using external search engines, such as Google, to find information.

MuseWiki search

Put your text in the searchbox; it provides an input field with two buttons:

  • Go - the Go button (or Enter on the keyboard), will take you automatically to the best match for the entered keyword.
  • Search - the Search button will return a list of matching results.

External search engines

Various search engines can provide domain-specific searches, which lets you search Wikipedia specifically. Searches are based on the text as shown by the browser, so wiki markup is irrelevant.

In general, external search engines are faster than a Wikipedia search. However, because the search engine's cache is based on when the site was indexed, the search may not return newly created pages. Similarly, the search engine's cached version of the page will not be as up-to-date as the link to Wikipedia itself.
