Searching and Navigating

There are many ways to search, navigate and find your content in Paligo.

  • Using the Content Manager. The most obvious way to navigate content is to browse your folders and topics in the Content Manager.

  • Navigate through the structure of Publications. You can also show a publication where you have reused topics already in the Content Manager, and navigate through that. Just unfold the publication and click on the topics reused in it to edit them.


    Similarly, you can navigate through publications using the Structure View:

    1. Open a publication in the Structure View.

    2. Select and click a topic name.

    3. Scroll down to view the Metadata section.

    4. Find the heading Location. and click the location. This will open the folder where the topic is located.

  • Using Quick Search. The Quick Search is located at the top right of the editor. It gives you a very quick and convenient way of finding anything, and all search results are categorized according to the type of content.

  • Filter search in the Content Manager. At the bottom of the Content Manager you can access a filter search to scan the Content Manager. You can narrow down the list of folders, topics, images, etc. Either just type free text to filter on, or use the Search options to narrow down what to search for, e.g only images:

  • Taxonomies. You can easily find content you have tagged with taxonomy categories by just clicking on the category in the Taxonomy Manager. See The Taxonomy Managerfor more information.

  • Advanced Search. Finally, you have the most powerful search of all, the Advanced Search. This allows you to search content in an even more granular way. See Advanced Search.

Using wildcards

In the different types of search you can also use wildcards to find content.


You need to check the box Enable wildcard search next to the search field to use wildcards.

Use an asterisk (*) to represent one or many characters, or use a question mark to represent any single character. You can use these symbols anywhere in the search string.

For example, automati* would find both "automation" and "automatic", and automo?i?e would find both "automobile" and "automotive".
