Circa Nova is a social networking web application for individuals and organizations.

Javascript Disabled Cookies and Javascript must be enabled to use this site.

There is currenlty no internationalization implemented for this web application. It is American English only.

It is highly recommended that users of the site use the most current web browser versions. Rendering results may be unpredictable for older versions of user agents and browsers.

New versions of all browsers are freely downloadable and users of the site are very much encouraged to keep their browser version current.

Accessibility

Accessibility

Enlarge Text Many of us share accessibility problems, some more than others. W3SitePro/W3PagePro has taken a great interest in ensuring that its application designs do not present barriers to any visitor or member of its web application sites. Admittedly, much can be done to improve the efforts that went into making Circa Nova accessible. Techniques in web accessibility, user interfrace/experience (UI/UX) and universal design (UD) have been used for this site. However, except for a feature to enlarge and shrink text, the site has implemented only general accessibility concepts. For example, it is not always possible to use universal design icon buttons where the design of any one button in a grouped menu may not be clear. It is not clear in this sense, how to represent Friends as opposed to Members for buttons on logged in member pages, in a group menu that also includes, Profile, Blogs, Galleries and Groups.

Enlarge Text Site colors and contrasts between text and backgrounds, image alternate text and other techniques which allow scanners to make good sensible renderings of site pages have been given due attention. However, the site is not perfect. Please report any difficulties or suggestions you may have that can help W3SitePro/W3PagePro improve Circa Nova and its other web properties.

Menus

Menus

There are four types of navigation menus in use for this web application and all are very intuitive to use.

  • Horizonal Main Drop-Down Menu
  • Page Bread Crumb Menus
  • Button Menus (Text or Icon)
  • Table Menus
  • Link Menus

Menus The main drop-down menu is the primary navigation feature on the site. As the cursor is moved over each menu item, it may be clicked to go to the appropriate page. But at the same time, if a drop down exists, it opens up to allow selecting additional pages which are related to the main menu item. Moving the cursor down over items on the drop-down causes them to highlight. Clicking a highlighted drop-down menu item will invoke the page for that item.

Bread Crumb Menus appear at the top of most pages and trace a path from Home down through the heirarchy of menu items to the current page. Any one of the bread crumb entries may be clicked to go back up the heirarchy. Bread Crumb Menu

Button (Text or Icon) Menus appear in many places and are used to invoke not just navigation to new pages, but specific application functions, like adding a blog or gallery. The icon buttons are universal in their design and the meaning of the button should be clear, regardless of the spoken language of a visitor or member on the site. Button (Text or Icon) Menus

Text Link Menus are likely the simplest type of menu and are very common on all web sites. Footer menus are typical examples, but text link menus may appear in many other places on a site. A footer menu will normally repeat many of the main menu items, for accessibility reasons, allowing accessibility scanner user agents to repeat navigation menu items at the bottom of a scan. Text Link Menus

Menus serve both for navigation and for activation of specific web application functions. Often single buttons or links are all that exist for certain activations and navigations. Solitary buttons and links such as this may be viewed as single item menus, albeit, menus are normally considered to have more than one selection available.

New Members

New Members

Become a Member To become a member of AvenuesPlus, site visitors need to create a member account. If not signed up, the Members page offers a form to get started. The same form can be reached as a popup, via the Sign In button. Note that account names must always be email addresses.

Notify E-Mail Link Validation The requirement that new member accounts have valid E-mail addresses for their login name must be absolutely validated. A link will be sent to the E-mail account and the new membership will not be activated until the prospective member activates the account by following the link from their E-mail account to resubmit the name. New Account E-Mail Link

After creating a basic account, new members wil have access to add additional account profile information, including an avatar, education, employment, military service, likes/dislikes, activities and awards information. Changing Passwords will also be possible.

New Member Activation Many of the best features of the AvenuesPlus web application are not available to non-members and are not available to members, until after they login. Non-members can appreciate some of the features of the site through public interfaces, but the real utility and pleasure of the site can only be realized by becoming a member.

Membership is FREE.

Logging In

Logging In

Sign In Use the Sign In Button to log in. Clicking the button will bring up a login popup. Account names must always be email addresses. The sign in popup will also allow creation of an account for new members and resolving forgotten passwords.

Sign In AvenuesPlus has an automatic log-out feature after fifteen to twenty minutes of inactivity. Currently there is not a 'keep me logged in' override for the automatic logout feature. Constant activity will keep the logged in session active and current. After logging in, the Sign In button will change to a Sing Out button. Use the Sign Out button to manually log out. Sign In

Forgotten Password

Forgotten Password

Forgot Password? Should a member forget their password, a method to reset it is available. Start by pressing the Sign In Button and choose Forgot Password.

Forgotten Password E-Mail Link Notify The member who has forgotten their password will be notified that a special link has been sent to their E-mail address. The member then follows instructions, clicks the link and resets their password. Forgotten Password E-Mail Link

Forgotten Password Restore
Account Setup

Account Setup

After creating a member account, it can be extended to include the following:

  • A custom member Avatar and Alias Name
  • Additional Personal Profile Information
  • Service History
  • Awards
  • Password Change Facility

Account Menu Item Members must be logged in to update their account setup. The account menu will not even show on the menu bar until after logging in. Then, it will be accessible until the member signs out, at which time it will disappear once more. Clicking on the Account Menu Item opens up the account setup page. Again, the account setup page can not be accessed in any way if members are not logged in.

Account update screens begin by displaying the current information and one or more editing buttons, add, edit and delte. Adding or editing switch the display screen for a data entry form and allow members to add or update information. Account Setup Display

The controls on the forms are the same as those used for all web data entry (DE) forms. These include text input, text area, select, check and radio buttons. Other controls such as number spinners may be found on these forms as well. Asterisks mark fields which require data to be entered. Clicking the submit button commits changes to the database. Reset clears the form and cancel returns to the display screen. Account Setup Data Entry Form

Note that the Add button allows members to create multiple records of the same type. They may create multiple employment records, say, for employment in one company, then later, in another and still later, as a Governement Service employee. Certainly, many people have had more than one employer. Of course, there is no need to have more than one profile and accordingly, the Add and Delete buttons are abscent from the Profile DE screen.

Account Setup Error Display Data Entry errors are indicated by red borders on the bad fields and an error message which indicates the nature of the problem. Similarly, text area controls indicate the number of remaining characters in green, until there are ony about 25 left and then indicate the remainder in red. Some fields may be blocked from modification and are greyed out, like the Alias field for the Profile DE screen.

Avatar Upload Screen The Avatar DE screen is unusual in that it allows browsing for and uploading an image from the members personal computer onto the server for display as an avator. Together with the member's alias, the avatar appears in blogs, posts, comments, galleries and kiosks, identifying the member as the author of the text and images being displayed. The Avatar DE screen is in fact, the standard screen used on most web-sites to upload single files.

Password Change Screen The final account setup screen type is used to change passwords. It hides characters as they are input, showing instead a series of dots. It requires the old password to be entered to authorize the change and then to eliminate the possiblity of keying errors, it requires that the new password be entered twice. It then compares the two entries and if they are equivalent, changes the password.

Members

Members

The Members Page is the hub activity for logged in members. It allows members to find friends, create groups, create blogs, create galleries, send and receive messages and more. The Members Page has multiple different appearances, dending upon its current state and member activity. The page is very dynamic in this regard.

There are three types of initial states for the Members page as follows:

  • Initial Logged Out State, No Member
  • Initial Profile State for Any Member
  • Initial Profile State for Current Logged in Member

No Member Profile For the initial profile state where no member is logged in and no other member is selected for rendering, shows a greeting and a form for creating a new account. Again, becoming a member of Circa Nova is free and visitors are encouraged to join and share their perspectives.

Other Member Profile State The initial profile state for members who are not logged in does not show any of the configuration buttons or allow messaging. Public visitors to a member's Members page may use any of the icon buttons to review that member's profile and their public blogs, galleries and kiosk. This basic functionality is always available on the Members page for rendered members. If member pages are viewed by the public, no service, award and other other profice information is displayed. If viewed by logged in members, this information is visible.

Current Member Profile State Member pages may be rendered in two basic ways, 1) by clicking view on a member from member and friend listings, and 2) by querystring application to the page URL in the browser or using location box. In fact, viewing a member simply reloads the Members page with the appropriate querystring applied. Query strings are a common web technique used on many web sites. Rendering member pages with query strings allows members who can write their own web pages to create links to specific member pages and allow search engines to identify and list specific member pages. The query strings apply member first and last names and an index to differentiate between multiple members who often have the same name. It is quite common for people in today's world to share the same name and the index is created automatically when new member accounts are created. To figure out a spcific query string for a member, just find the member view member or freind lists, or via search, then view the query string in your browsers's location box. Applying member specific query strings to all site pages will cause member specific versions of pages to be rendered instead of the default pages or logged in member pages. To learn more about query strings, reference an HTML or HTTP technical reference, either on the web or in specific books or other references. The subject detail is out of scope for this help reference, except to clarify that member pages are rendered using query strings.

Current Member Profile State The initial profile state for the currently logged in member shows the member's profile and the same Icon buttons which are visible for those members rendered who are not logged in. In this state, the logged in member also has access to additional buttons which allow them to configure their blogs, galleries kiosks. Members can add friends, create groups, set privacy levels on blogs, galleries, kiosks and groups and populate groups with specific friends. They may also use the messaging tool to send and receive local member messages in a much more secure way than using blogs. Service, Award and other profile information is always visible to logged in members viewing their own member page.

Kiosk Button Earlier, it had been stated that the Members page had multiple states. Up to this point, only the three initial states have been covered. Additional states for the page regard loading of blog lists, gallery lists, member lists, friend lists and group lists. These lists are loaded in the lower part of the page when specific icon or text menu buttons are clicked. Among the buttons initially displayed, only the Kiosk icon button navigates off the Members page, loading instead, the Kiosk page. Later, after specific lists are loaded, list associated function buttons may also navigate off the Members Page.

Blogs Button Blog List The Blogs Icon and Text Buttons load the blog list in the page. The list will contain all blogs for member pages and these lists will contain additional function buttons for logged in members viewing their own member page. These buttons will allow creating new blogs, changing blog group and privacy settings, tagging blogs and navigating to the Blogs page to view or interact via a chosen blog. Only logged in members may post or comment on blogs and private blogs will not be visible to other members in the listings, unless they are friended by the Blog owner and included in the blog's private group.

Galleries Button Gallery List The Galleries Icon and Text Buttons load the gallery list in the page. The list will contain all blogs for member pages and these lists will contain additional function buttons for logged in members viewing their own member page. These buttons will allow creating new galleries, changing gallery group and privacy settings, tagging galleries and navigating to the Galleries page to view chosen gallery. Private galleries will not be visible to other members in the listings, unless they are friended by the Gallery owner and included in the gallery's private group.

Profile Button Profile List The Profile Icon and Text Buttons load the profile list in the page. The list will contain all service, award and other additional profile information that was setup for a member account. There may be multiple records for each category of information displayed. Not all members will have provided this additional information and it will not be visible to members who are not logged in.

Messages Button Messages List The Message Icon loads the message list in the page. The icon will indicate the number of current message in the list in the white box and the number of unread messages in the red box. The message list will allow reading and deleting messages. New Messages may be created and sent. The message list is normally presented with messages collapsed, showing only the message header information for each message. Reading a message expands the message text for that message. Note that messages are the mechanism for inviting and accepting new friends. The message button does not display for public viewers of a rendered member's page, only for logged in members.

Revert (Default, Home, Self) Button The Revert Icon Button only shows for rendered member pages and not for a currently logged in member's member page. For a logged in member who is viewing another member's page, it is used to revert back to the member's own page. This button may also be called a Default, Home or Self button.

Messages

Messages

Messages are an interactive communication between members of the site. Messages are in some ways, similar to e-mail, but messages are bound to the application and are shared only between application members. Messages may be used to invite friends and concurrently, to accept friend invitations. Newly accepted friends are established in the public group of the friend members. Friends may then be moved into other groups established by a member, from the member's public group. This will allow that friend access to blogs and galleries assigned to specific groups, while excluding other members from access to those blogs and galleries. Note that Kiosks are always public to all logged in members, unless a kiosk owner specifically makes it private. Privacy does not hide a Kiosk. It only prevents others from posting to or commenting on its contents.

Messages Button Messages List When a member is logged in and viewing their own member page, the Message Icon loads the message list in the page. The icon will indicate the number of current message in the list in the white box and the number of unread messages in the red box. The message list will allow reading and deleting messages. New Messages may be created and sent. The message list is normally presented with messages collapsed, showing only the message header information for each message. Reading a message expands the message text for that message. Note again, that messages are the mechanism for inviting and accepting new friends. The message button does not display for public viewers of a rendered member's page, only for logged in members.

New Message Popup Clicking the New Message Button brings up the New Message Popup. After entering the alias of the member to receive the message, a subject for the message and the message, pressing submit sends the message. The next time the recipient member reloads their member page, the new message will show as an increased message count and unread message count. When the recipient clicks their Messages Icon button, the new message will show in the list and may be read.

Friends

Friends

Friends and Groups are the key components of a privacy mechanism which is an integral part of the Circa Nova web application. Friends are other members which any one member may list in their public group and in turn move to other groups which they create and name. Groups are given privacy settings of either Public or Private. Blogs and Galleries are also given privacy settings. But Blogs and Galleries belong to Groups as well. These settings allow assigning a member's friends specific access rights to member assets where assets are defined as Blogs, Galleries and their contents. Rights allow other members to post and comment on blogs, if they are members of the group to which those blogs belong. The privacy setting of a blog or gallery controls public visibility, in general.

Messages List Members create friends, initially in their default Public Group via message invitations. Simply click the New Friend button, enter the alias of the member to be invited and click submit. That will send the invite message. When the message is received by the recipient, it will have an Accept button. If the member clicks the button, they will be added as a friend in the other member's public group. Likewise, the other member will be added as a friend in their group. On the member's member page, when logged in, the Friends button can be clicked to show the member's friends list. Clicking View will load render that member's profile page.

Users need to know the alias of members who they wish to invite as friends. At the current time, Circa Nova does not suggest friends. Member lists and Search may be used to find friends, or a user may recognize a member alias from posts or comments on blogs they have visited.

Groups

Groups

Friends and Groups are the key components of a privacy mechanism which is an integral part of the Circa Nova web application. Friends are other members which any one member may list in their public group and in turn move to other groups which they create and name. Groups are given privacy settings of either Public or Private. Blogs and Galleries are also given privacy settings. But Blogs and Galleries belong to Groups as well. These settings allow assigning a member's friends specific access rights to member assets where assets are defined as Blogs, Galleries and their contents. Rights allow other members to post and comment on blogs, if they are members of the group to which those blogs belong. The privacy setting of a blog or gallery controls public visibility, in general.

Messages List A member always has a default Public Group. The Public Group cannot be deleted. Newly accepted friends are initially added to the public group. Members may create additional groups and may add current friends to other groups. Blogs and Galleries may be created and have a group applied to them, making them available only to members of that group, unless they are given public privacy, allowing them to be viewed by the public, but not able to posted to or commented on by the public.

On the member page, logged in members may add new groups, delete groups and change privacy of groups. They may not delete the public group. Friend members within a group may be viewed, loading and rendering their member profile pages.

Kiosks

Kiosks

Kiosk Button Kiosks are an electronic form of Kiosk. A kiosk is similar to what many might know as a bulletin or message board. It is normally a free standing structure located in public places where people may post up notices, billings and other informational material. Both Members and Advertisers may provide Kiosk Content on Circa Nova. Images and Text may be added to Kiosks by members and other members may freely add comments to both.

Public Kiosk Button Kiosk Header There are two types of Kiosk, a personal member kiosk and a public kiosk. Members may control what gets posted on personal kioks. They may block advertisements and remove other member comments and posts. They may in fact make their Kiosk private to posting while leaving it visible to the public. Public Kiosks are open to all members and may not be controlled by any member. Members may post images, text and comments to the Public Kiosk freely. Both member and public kiosks begin with a kiosk header which lists the counts of blogs and galleries available in the public or member's domains.

Add Text Button Delete Text Button Kiosk Text Text may be added to kiosks by logged in members using the Add Text Icon Button. Logged in members may always add text to kiosks. Member kiosks are policed by their owners and owners may choose to delete certain text posts, if they are offensive and determined by the kiosk owner to be undesirable. The poster of text on a kiosk can always delete that text.

Add Comment Button Delete Comment Button Comments may be applied to both posted text and posted images on kiosks. Logged in members may always add comments to kiosks. Again, member kiosks are policed by their owners and owners may choose to delete certain comments, if they are offensive and determined by the kiosk owner to be undesirable. The poster of a comment on a kiosk can always delete that comment. Note that deleting the text or image to which comments are applied will delete those comments as well.

Add Image Button Delete Image Button Kiosk Text Images may be added to kiosks by logged in members using the Add Image Icon Button. Logged in members may always add images to kiosks. After adding an image, an initial comment may be edited and added as well. Member kiosks are policed by their owners and owners may choose to delete certain image posts, if they are offensive and determined by the kiosk owner to be undesirable. The poster of images on a kiosk can always delete those images.

Delete Text Button Kiosk Advertisements Advertisements are added to kiosks via ad queues which visitors and members of the Circa Nova web application have no control over. However, member kiosks are policed by their owners and owners may choose to block an advertisement. Member kiosk owners may find their kiosk becoming overcrowded with ads, find the ad inapplicable to the context of their kiosk or otherwise determine the ad to be undesirable. The Block Advertisement Icon Button allows them to do this. Advertisements may not be blocked on the Public Kiosk. Advertisements may be simple images or they may be HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) components. W3SitePro/W3PagePro works with advertisers to ensure that their advertisements are tasteful, family oriented and adhere to certain behavioral restrictions which keep them from being pushy and irritating to site members.

Blogs

Blogs

Blogs Button Blog List Blogs on Circa Nova are a bit more functional than blogs elsewhere. Firstly, members my create multiple blogs. They may restrict who may post and/or comment to their blogs via friend groups. The blogs are collapsible, allowing subjects of posts to be readily visible. Content of a post is expanded and once that is done, comments may be expanded as well. Blogs may be listed on both the member profile page and on the Blogs Page. A specific blog can be viewed and interacted with by clicking the View Button on specific Blog in the listings. The New Blog, Group, Privacy and Tags buttons are only available to the logged in member owner of the blogs on such lists and not visible to others. They are used respectively, to create new blogs and change the group, privacy and tags for a blog.

Add Post Button Delete Post Button Blog Post and Comment Posts may be added to blogs by logged in members using the Add Post Icon Button. Logged in members may always add posts to public blogs. They may add posts to private blogs, if they are included as friends in the owners group for that blog. Member blogs are policed by their owners and owners may choose to delete certain posts, if they are offensive and determined by the blog owner to be undesirable. The poster to a blog can always delete their own posts.

Add Comment Button Delete Comment Button Comments may be applied to posts on blogs. Logged in members may always add comments to blogs. Again, member blogs are policed by their owners and owners may choose to delete certain comments, if they are offensive and determined by the blog owner to be undesirable. The poster of a comment on a blog can always delete that comment. Note that deleting the posts to which comments are applied will delete those comments as well.

Galleries

Galleries

Galleries Button Gallery List Member Galleries may only be posted to by the owner of the Gallery. The owner of the gallery may restrict the privacy of their galleries, making them visible only to select groups of friend members. Galleries may be listed on both the member profile page and on the Gallery Page. A specific gallery can be viewed and interacted with by clicking the View Button on specific Gallery in the listings. The New Gallery, Group, Privacy and Tags buttons are only available to the logged in member owner of the galleries on such lists and not visible to others. They are used respectively, to create new galleries and change the group, privacy and tags for a gallery.

Add Image Button Delete Image Button Gallery Images Unlike blogs, image posts may be added to galleries only by the logged in member owner of the gallery. This is done using the Add Image Icon Button. Since all content for a gallery is placed there by the owner of the gallery, there is no need to police the gallery. Privacy for the gallery is not a concern regarding posting to it. It does however, effect the visibility of the gallery, whether the public may view it or whether only certain members in a friend group may view it. The owner may delete images from the gallery by using the Delete Image Icon Button.

Gallery Image Upload Adding an image invokes a special popup which allows browsing for and uploading an image from the members personal computer onto the server for display in their gallery. Currently, only one image may be uploaded at a time. A caption may be added during the upload process. This method is the standard used on most web-sites to upload single files. Members should be aware that there are restrictions on the size and type of image file being uploaded. If an image fails to upload, try to resize it using whatever tool may be available and try again. Uploaded images are always resized and repackaged to prevent uploads of harmful viruses, worms and other malignant agents.

Expand Image Button Expanded Gallery Images may be expanded by clicking the Magnify Button located at the bottom of every image in the gallery, or by clicking on the image itself. An enlarged image will display in an image rotator popup. The rotator popup will allow circular shifting or rotating through all gallery images, left to right or right to left. Detailed info about each image is displayed. This includes the caption, the author, the location where the image originated, the camera used and the medium used to diplay it, often just film or digital.

Gallery Image Detail Edit Popup Images may be added to the gallery or deleted from it directly, while viewing the gallery in the expanded gallery popup. Also, the detail for each image may be added or edited by clicking the edit button in the right panel. Clicking the button will transform the detail display into an editable form, allowing the detail to be added or modified. Edits may be cancelled or saved.

Planned future enhancements to the expanded gallery popup include an automated slide show and possibly, an image carrousel.

Search

Search

Search Box A fully functional on-site search facility allows members and the public to locate members and content in a flash. A general search box applies search criteria to all information on the site, member names and aliases, blog and gallery titles and tags, image captions, blog posts and comments, kiosk text and comments, everything. Whatever it might be, if it exists on the site, it's easily found and rendered via the search facility.

Advanced Search Popup Search Box Advanced Search allows members to be more discrete when applying search criteria. The small down-arrow next to the main menu search box invokes advanced search. The advanced search popup allows selection of search input for Members, Blogs, Galleries or Kiosks. Each input screen is specifically tailored to apply criteria applicable to each of these four areas, respectively. A drop down select allows choosing the search input type.

The Circa Nova Search Facility supports advanced search criteria syntax. Advanced search syntax allows querying the VETA database in sophisticated ways to find information that goes well beyond simply entering a few chosen words. It pays to learn the advanced search syntax as it is supported by most, if not all, search engines, like Google, Yahoo, Bing, and so on. If the syntax is not yet understood, ok. It is covered here, in the following paragraphs for the benefit of members and public alike.

The Circa Nova Search Facility supports a subsett of advanced search criteria syntax. Advanced search syntax allows querying the VETA database in sophisticated ways to find information that goes well beyond simply entering a few chosen words. It pays to learn the advanced search syntax as it is supported by most, if not all, search engines, like Google, Yahoo, Bing, and so on. If the syntax is not yet understood, ok. It is covered here, in the following paragraphs for the benefit of members and public alike.

Terms

Search terms may be single words, a sequence of words or a quoted phrase, sequence of words. Single words are applied independently in searches while quoted phrases are applied as a single term.

These are single words
"This is a phrase"

Fields

Search fields apply a field name to search criteria. The field name is given, followed by a colon and the search text for the field. As the table structures for the site database are not generally known to members or the public, this advanced search feature is not supported.

fieldname: "Search text for the field"

Boolean Operators

The boolean AND, OR, +, - and NOT operators are applied to search criteria to require that 1) all ANDed terms must be satisfied, 2) that any of a group of ORed terms will satisfy a search, 3) a + term must exist within a field, 4) a - term is not present and 5) that a NOT term does not exist in a field. The Boolean operators AND, OR and NOT are not supported on this site, but can be easily emulated. Un-phrased word terms are effectively ORed. Phrased word terms are effectively ANDed. The - operator can be used to emulate NOT. The + and - operators are supported. Note that the + and - operators should not have whitespace between them and the terms they are applied to.

"Some Words" AND "More Still"
"Some Words" OR "More Still"
+Required
+"Required Phrase"
-Exlcuded
-"Excluded Phrase"
NOT Excluded
NOTE "Excluded Phrase"

Ranges

Ranges are applied to fields to obtain search results that fall within a range in the field. The [] and {} operators are used to specify ranges. Which is used depends upon whether the range should be inclusive or exclusive. Since fields are not supported for this site's search facility, neither are ranges.

name:[Abigail to Zacharia]
date:{1970-01-01 to 1980-12-31}

Modifiers

The regular expression wildcard modifiers ? and * can be used to substitute any character, either once for ?, or multiple times for *. The ? is not supported.

Tr?p can be Trap or Trip
Tr*d can be Trapped or Trucked or Trend

Proximity

The ~ operator can be used to find information where two words are within a specific character distance of each other. The Proximity Operator is not supported.

"Distance Away"~20

Grouping

The grouping operators () are used to associate terms around boolean operators, effectively forming subqueries. They are alose used with fields. Since fields and the boolean operators AND, OR and NOT are not supported, the grouping operators are not supported.

(This OR These) AND Those
text:(This OR These) AND Those

Fuzzy Search

Fuzzy Search uses the ~ operator to make assumptions about the remainder of a term based on what is called the Edit Distance algorithm. A similary parameter between 0 and 1 can also be applied.

Someth~
Noth~0.3

Term Boosting

Term boosting is used to give more search relevance to one of several terms. It uses the ^ opeator with a numeric value to do this. Boosting is not supported and will not effect ordering or the likelyhood of preferred selection of one term over another.
