You can make your search even more powerful by adding optional flags to your search query!

  • The format of a flag is flag:parameters. Put that anywhere in your search.
  • Some flags have aliases, which may be used in place of the flag.
  • For boolean parameter types, use true, 1, on, or yes for true, or anything else for false.
  • For flags that accept multiple parameters, separate each parameter with "," (a comma).
  • Flags are case insensitive.
  • You can use as many flags and flag-combinations as your heart desires! Have fun!
  • We're always looking to make our search better. To suggest an additional flag for your specific needs, please contact us.
