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"

Any widget that you create will automatically be added to the palette that can be added and used an any other widget. They will be under the category of something like “user widgets”

Im not sure what you mean? You can change the visibility of user widgets you add to another widget and control when they render with logic.

If you want to create a Slate widget you have to make an SWidget with a UWidget counterpart in C++. Or you can just make a UUserWidget in C++ if you don't need to actually build the layout of the widget in C++.
