Searching within a community

Search a community for a given keyword to return all of the community content that contains that keyword. Your search results include content from any applications that have been added to the community, for example, activities, blogs, events, and wikis.

Before you begin

You must open a community before you can search the content within that community.

Note: If your community contains linked libraries, content from those libraries is only searched if your administrator has enabled it. When linked library search is enabled for Communities, an additional Linked Library tab displays with your search results from linked libraries. Search results from linked libraries do not display in the All Connections Content tab.


To search the content of a community, complete the following steps.

  1. Click the Down arrow next to the search control and ensure that This Community is selected. This option is selected by default.
  2. Enter one or more keywords to search for in the text field.
  3. Click the search Search icon icon.
