EAS provides a plug-in to add the EAS site search to the browser's search box. Once installed, EAS will be persistently defined as a search engine in your browser. You are able to perform searches at EAS without previously visiting the site. The plug-in is based on the OpenSearch standard.
Removal of Firefox plug-in Click on the EAS symbol beside the search box in Firefox. Choose "Manage Search Engines". You can easily remove EAS Site Search from the list.
Removal of Internet Explorer plug-in Go to the magnification lens next to the search box in IE. Choose "Change Search Defaults". You can easily remove EAS Site Search from the list.
This is a true full-text site search engine. Thanks to Fluid Dynamics for the script.
Scope of the search You can search the entire EAS site family (default) or select a particular area of interest (Advanced Starship Design Bureau, Ex Astris Scientia, Journal of Applied Treknology or The Starfleet Museum). Note that, in order to save webspace and time, the fan fiction section is excluded from the search.
Search terms All pages are displayed that contain the search term you entered. Only in the case of extremely long HTML pages, the indexing may have stopped prior to reaching its end.
Relevance By default, the most "relevant" content will always appear at the top of the result pages, where relevance is calculated from the keyword position and frequency.
Case insensitivity (A/a) Searches are case insensitive. Searching for padd will match the lowercase "padd" and uppercase "PADD". By default, all searches are accent insensitive as well. Accent sensitivity relates to language-specific characters like "õ".
Logical OR/AND Selecting "any" will yield all pages that contain any of multiple search terms (logical OR). Selecting "all" will give you only pages that contain all of the terms (logical AND).
Including or excluding words (+/-) To include a specific word to the search, place the plus (+) symbol before the keyword in the search box. To exclude a specific word from the search, use a minus (-) sign in the same fashion.
Example: To find information about the Defiant but (for once) not about its length, try Defiant -length.
Phrases You can link words and numbers together into phrases if you want specific words or numbers to appear together in your result pages. If you want to find an exact phrase, use quotation marks around the phrase when you enter words in the search box.
Example #1: To find specific terms in a specific order, type something like "Starfleet Command" in the search box. You can also create phrases using punctuation or special characters such as dashes, underscore lines, commas, slashes or dots.
Example #2: Search for NCC-1701-A instead of NCC 1701 A. The dashes link the letters and numbers together as a phrase.
Wildcards (*) By typing an * at the end of a keyword, you can search for the word with multiple endings.
Example: Try Romul*, to find Romulus, Romulan or Romulans.
Searching for page titles A search with the pattern title:<text> finds pages that contain the specified word or phrase in the page title (which appears in the title bar of most browsers). Note that there must be no space between the colon and the search term.
Example: The search title:Defiant finds pages with "Defiant" in the title, in other words, pages probably dealing with the Defiant.
Searching for web addresses If your search term is a URL, like "http://www.mytreksite.com/", the search engine may not find it, as it doesn't search links.
Ignored search terms It may happen that your search is rejected because the search term is a very common word or a fraction thereof. Try something more specific.
Example: The search for "the" will return no results.
