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"

I've looked around a bunch and can't find a proper solution that works.

I've tried regenerating certain files but it didn't work. The following are the steps I took:

I deleted the following files from my project folder: ".vs, Binaries, Config, Intermediate, Saved, .sln".

After deleting the files I right clicked on the .uproject file and clicked "Generate Visual Studio project files"...

The result of generating the Visual Studio project files... alt text

After trying to open the .uporject again I got a message saying there were missing modules and asked if I'd like them to be rebuilt, I clicked yes... alt text

After they were built I tried to open the .uproject file and got this message... alt text

I see this message occasionally and follow the same flow (delete Intermediate, regenerate VS project etc). The only thing I do differently is after regenerating the VS project, I open visual studio and hit Rebuild all.
