How to browse all site content

How to browse & then search site content

Use these instructions to browse through all the content on your ThoughtFarmer intranet. Browsing content allows a slightly different way to search the intranet and find exactly what you're looking for: It lets you start looking for something using content filters rather than a search term. For instance, you can select a specific person or tag to narrow down search results. You can also start by narrowing your search criteria to just a specific content type (eg. Document, Page, or Comment) or a date range.

Click "Browse" next to search box

  • Step 1: At the top right-hand corner of any page click "Browse", to the right of the search box.
  • Step 2a: Under "Type" click on one of the 12 content types available. This will show you everything on the intranet of that specific type. OR
  • Step 2b: Under "Posted date" click on one of the date ranges to see everything on the site posted during that period. OR
  • Step 2c: Under "Edited by" or "Owned by" click on a name in the list, or type a name in the search box, click on the matching name from the list that appears and then click the search button. This will show you everything on the intranet edited by that individual. OR
  • Step 2d: Under "Tag" click on one of the top 100 tags listed. This will show you everything on the intranet that has that tag.
  • Step 3: In the search results page use other filters to further narrow down your results.
The Browse page also has an expandable tree view of the site map on the left hand side. Click the arrow next to a page title to expand the list of sub-pages; you can drill down into the navigation and click a link to go directly to a page.
