I've been around here for a while, but I never really learned how to use the search function. I know there is a page introducing new users to LaTeX. Is there also a new page introducing users to the search function?

I know that if you click on the search bar, there is a small guide. But I am wondering if there is a page which explains things in more details.

    $\begingroup$ Clicking on the search page pops-up a brief list of options, and at bottom right there is a link to "search help": How do I search? $\endgroup$
