Buck,

I can see where breaking up the big tips pages could be very helpful.
Maybe I (like you) can do it sometime when I've not got anything else to
do. (Ha!)

I think the search box on the wiki actually does search only the wiki, but
it includes results from unrelated categories--e.g., RPG, .NET, SEU, DFU,
etc. What would be nice is to be able to select the category(/categories)
to be included in the search. A good example is searching for 'Find'. The
desired results are included in the list, but there's a lot of irrelevant
stuff, too.

Does google allow a limiting a search to something like 'site:
http://wiki.midrange.com/index.php/WDSC'? I don't know if that would even
really help as the results I would be looking for might be under something
else, but tagged with the category WDSC.

Shortcuts' page.

Yes, that's a problem. *I* personally found it via browsing, but the
wiki would be a much better resource if things were findable via a
search.

To help make 'finding' it easier, I added a link to the
shortcuts page on the WDSC tips/Find page.

Thanks Michael! Even though a 'one hit search' is the goal, better
links make for a better wiki. I've been wanting to break those giant
'tips' pages up but haven't found the time.

It would be nice if there was a
simple and obvious way to limit searches to the wiki.

I am must admit that I use Google for this:
findSelection site:wiki.midrange.com
