Question: How does search work?

The search box at the top of each page can help you search through almost everything in LitHive. You can find books, text within books, beings (i.e. people), hives, comments, discussions, and even vouchers that give you discount on book purchases.

AND - ‘cat dog’ will find records matching ‘cat’ AND ‘dog’.

NOT - ‘cat -dog’ will find records matching ‘cat’ AND NOT ‘dog’

INCLUDE - ‘cat +me’ will find records matching ‘cat’ and ‘me’, even if ‘me’ is smaller than themin_word_size

“” - Quoted terms are matched as phrases. ‘“cat dog”’ will find records matching the whole phrase. Quoted terms can be preceded by the NOT operator; ‘cat -“big dog”’ etc. Quoted terms can include words shorter than the min_word_size.

^ - Terms that begin with ^ will match records that contain a word starting with the term. ‘^cat’ will find matches containing ‘cat’, ‘catapult’, ‘caterpillar’ etc.

^“” - A quoted term that begins with ^ matches any phrase that begin with this phrase. ‘^“cat d”’ will find records matching the whole phrases “cat dog” and “cat dinner”. This type of search is useful for autocomplete inputs.
