Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hey OceanCam-

I want to confirm that your project directory includes a folder that is named with the dot character (.)? This special character may be interfering with properly reading the file location. Also, are you able to successfully compile the project if the editor is closed? Do you get a similar error when trying to compile a new blank project with the editor open?

Hey OcenCam-

We've not heard back from you in a few days and I will be marking this as answered for tracking purposes. If you are still having problems with compiling with the editor open please feel free to comment back here and we will continue to investigate.
