A few additions the the WW2 search engine:

(i)
Award search added. You can only search for one award at a time and enter with spaces between letters. Example:

M C

(ii)
Citation search. Enter words as required. All words must match, in any order

(iii)
Changes to the Included field- This is the additional Info field in the record.

Include all words: Enter words as required with a space between each. Words will be matched in any order (this is the AND function)

Include exact phrase: Find exact word or phrase.

Not Including: Rejects records with this exact word or phrase.

All three of these fields must match to find a record.

cheers,

geoff

In memory of the grandfather I never got to know and the battalion that sacrificed itself twice in two world wars near Ypres.

Hey Geff, Can you explain Citation search little bit more. I want information about it.


You can search for any word or words that appear in the Citation field
For example, this thread was based on searches found for various words relating to the subject:

Search engines are down. My web hosting company has 'upgraded' my account. Now they don't work. Hope it is temporary.

May be. Don't think it's bothered on php versions but may be something simple like file permissions. Since I cannot log on, I cannot tell!

I'll leave it a while in case stuff is still migrating. Then join the tech support queue at a tenner per hour or whatever!
