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"

Moved Files continue to show up in explorer

I have been creating material instances and then moving them to a particular folder in the content browser. I noticed that when it came to commit that these files were still showing up in my explorer file system, but not in the content browser. What am I missing?

Have you fix up your redirectors? If not any time you move something right-click the folder and select fix up redirectors and it should remove the 1k'ish file (the redirector file) that remains after moving the file. You can also run that command on the entire root content folder and it should remove redirectors found in all subfolders.
