|Learn about the different ways to find data on your Scratchpad|
The Search box in the header has different search options: All and Taxonomy. All finds all content that includes the search term. Taxonomy only searches for terms in one of the vocabularies and returns the matched terms. When you are viewing a page ("Page" content type) you will get an additional option to search only page content. Clicking on the <Search> button when the search field is empty will lead to a faceted search page.
Some pages provide the option of faceted search in a separate block on the left of the page. Faceted search can be used to filter the nodes of a content type (e.g. References) To use the faceted search:
Click on one of the content types in the Main menu to find the respective data. Several content types, like literature and media gallery offer faceted browsing for smarter and more powerful searching.
As maintainer of a site you can also find content via the Admin menu.
This way you can only find content by content type. The advantage is that you can find content that is not published which is otherwise difficult. Additionally, you can search by username or do operations like deleting or (un)publishing several nodes at once.
You can customize your dashboard to show recent content.
