Search Page

The following keyword replacements can be used on a Search Page.

In the following keywords, <field_name> refers to the name of the field that was entered when it was created on the Search Fields screen, and <category_name> refers to the name of the category that was entered when it was created on the Search Categories screen.

Please note that the following keyword replacement formats are reserved for specific purposes within Squiz Matrix:

  • %begin_*%

Using these formats as your search field or search category names will create conflicts and throw an error.
