The thematical specification of a weblog can either be defined by the interests
of the webog owner or according to the content itself. The latter can be found
using the full text search. If you search for "sailing" you will find
every weblog with content contains the term "sailing".
You can also search for weblogs of owners who have specified their interests.
please note: if a user has inserted "sport" as an interest but has
never used the word "sport" in his/her entries, the full text search
will not identify this specific user.

The portal offers different ways to search for weblogs and users. You
can perform a full text search or search
for the username of other users. This search will only find users who have agreed
to be listed in the members catalog. In addition to the main searches, every
individual weblog offers a search function that helps you find keywords within
the particular weblog, the name of the weblog or within the comments there.
The search result will show all users who match your request. The search result
will show a clickable username and the name of the weblog(s). Clicking
the username will guide you directly to the profile of the user. Clicking the
name of the weblog will lead you to the starting page of the weblog.
The search result list will show you all the users whose usernames begin with
the particular search item. E.g. a search for "al" will show you all
the users whose names begin with "al" (alan, alfred, alex, etc.).
A search beginning with "ale" will list all names beginning with "ale"
(alex, alexandra, alexander, alene, alena, etc.).
Entries can also be found via a full text search. You can either look for a
complete word or just a fragment of a word. The search result will show you
which weblogs contain the particular word or fragment. It is also possible to
search for multiple words. If you select "read entry" on the search
result list, you will be guided to the relevant weblog.

» Can I enter multiple keywords?
If your search does not give you a result, check your entry. Try to
be less specific. Try to vary your keywords slightly whenever you are
using the fulltext search. If you search for more than one word, try to reduce
your search to the most important keywords.
» How to link mulitple keywords
The portal offers various search options. The easiest way is to enter multiple
keywords, which are separated by a single space. The search result will show
all entries which contain at least one of the keywords entered. The list will
be sorted according to the relevance of the search. The first search results
will contain the largest number of entered keywords. Results containing the
same amount of keywords will be ranked according to the amount of times the
keywords appeared. If there is not an entry which contains your keyword, there
will be no search result.
Alternatively, you can also search for entries that contain all of the keywords.
Simply seperate the keywords with the plus sign (and do not use blanks). E.g.
if you are looking for all entries about sailing in New Zealand, enter "+sailing+new+zealand".
All of the entries in the search result will contain sailing as well as
New Zealand. If, however, you want to find all entries which contain sailing
but not New Zealand, use the minus sign, e.g. "+sailing-New-Zealand".
You can enter any number of keywords and link them with either "+"
or "-". Please note that only words consisting of at least three letters
will be accepted. Searches are not case sensitive.
» What if I get no search result?
Yes, you can edit the URL of your weblog and maybe even create a subdomain. Thus, your
weblog URL will bei either http://nfl.21publish.com/myblog or http://myblog.21publish.com
