Are you looking for something specific on wikiHow? Finding an article or a page on wikiHow is very easy to do, and you can learn how by reading this article.

Using the wikiHow Search Bar

  1. Open the wikiHow search bar. This opens when you click above the white line (between wikiHow and the magnifying glass) in the green bar overhead.
  2. Type your query using keywords. Use the main words which you think will be likely to give results containing answers to your question.
  3. Hit the ↵ Enter button of your keyboard to view a list of titles. Alternatively, you can click on the magnifying glass once you have typed your query.

Searching For a wikiHow Category

  1. Click on Categories at the upper left of any page.
  2. Click on the most appropriate general category.
  3. Click on the most appropriate sub-category (optional).
    • Featured articles appear at the top of a page. Articles that require further editing appear at the bottom of a page.

Reading Related wikiHows

  • Use the Search Bar more effectively:
    • Place a plus sign (+) prior to each word to view each "word separately” within your search results, such as + writer + grammar + punctuation.
    • Place a minus sign (-) prior to each word to “omit a word,” such as recipe-meat for a vegetarian meal.
    • Use quotation marks, to view "consecutive words of a phrase," such as "flower arrangement."
  • If uncertain of spelling, choose a similar word. Example: Use obituary in place of eulogy.
  • Keyword implies the most specific or relevant word that describes your topic.
  • To access greater information, add a prefix or suffix to a word. Example: Use writer in place of write.
  • If uncertain of a category, choose one with a similar item. Example: Soup and dining would be found in the food category.
  • Utilize the terms wikiHow or User for policies or guidelines specific to this site.
  • Use Special:Search to perform advanced searches, such as filtering by namespace.
