This page refers to the default web based search in Firestorm; if you want information on Legacy Search, please see here.

Getting to search is pretty easy:

  • Click the magnifying glass icon on your bottom bar (if enabled)
  • Go to the Content menu and choose Search
  • Press Ctrl+F
  • Enter your search term in the Search field at the top right (skip the next paragraph)

The starting search window has a search field, a categories pull-down menu, a search button, three tabs for quick searches - Events, which is already selected, Destination Guide and Land & Rentals - and maturity rating selections. Below that is the results area. Without entering anything in search, this area shows a selection of results for the tab selected, as well as classified ads.

Once you enter a search term, press Enter or click the Search button. Optionally, you can filter your search to a specific type, like Groups, People or Events.

The results will be displayed, with filters on the left and adverts on the right. What shows in the results column is different depending upon what filter you applied. There are maturity icons for all results, and with no filter applied, the results also include a type icon, such as place, person, or group.

Clicking a result expands it, showing a bit of the description, picture and relevant action buttons depending upon the type of item it is.

Refer to this page if you have issues getting search to work.
