Help and FAQ
How do I use search to find a specific type of content?
The site wide search results can be filtered to narrow down search results to a specific type of content. This is helpful not only to view only documents or web pages, but also certain types of content such as news articles, working groups or consultations.
To filter search results, click on the search icon at the top of any page and enter a search term in the search bar. Then on the results page, expand the 'Result type' side bar and select the type of content you wish to view.
Please note that the 'Result type' options displayed dynamically update with every search. For example, certain search terms may not result in any news items being found, in which case 'news' would not be displayed as one of the selectable options.
