= Using Search =

Trac has a built-in search engine to allow finding occurrances of keywords and substrings in wiki pages, tickets and changeset descriptions.

Using the Trac search facility is straightforward and its interface should be familiar to most www users.

Apart from the [search: Search module], you will also find a small search field above the navigation bar at all time. There is no 

== Quickjumps ==
However, for intermediate and advanced use, Trac has a useful way to quickly navigate to a given module and information item, called '''quickjumps'''.

If you enter a [wiki:TracLinks TracLink] in the search field above the navigation bar, Trac will recognize this and assume you know where you're going. 

'''Note:''' ''This is a particularly useful feature to quickly navigate to a specific issue ticket or changeset.''

=== Advanced: Disabling quickjumps ===
To disable the quickjump feature in a search - to for example search for all occurences of !TracGuide - begin the query with an exclamation mark (!).
