SEARCHING FOR PRODUCTS

HOW TO USE SEARCH
Searching for merchandise is quick and easy.
1. Select the type of merchandise you would like to search for (VHS, DVD, TOYS or MAGS).
2. Enter a value into the text box. No special characters are necessary. All results will contain the value entered in the text box.
3. The search uses special boolean characters to refine your search. The following options are available:

+
A leading plus sign indicates that this word must be present in every row returned.
-
A leading minus sign indicates that this word must not be present in any row returned.
(no operator)
By default (when neither + nor - is specified) the word is optional, but the rows that contain it will be rated higher.
> <
These two operators are used to change a word's contribution to the relevance value that is assigned to a row. The > operator increases the contribution and the < operator decreases it. See the example below.
( )
Parentheses are used to group words into subexpressions. Parenthesized groups can be nested.
~
A leading tilde acts as a negation operator, causing the word's contribution to the row relevance to be negative. It's useful for marking noise words. A row that contains such a word will be rated lower than others, but will not be excluded altogether, as it would be with the - operator.
*
An asterisk is the truncation operator. Unlike the other operators, it should be appended to the word.
"
A phrase that is enclosed within double quote (`"') characters matches only rows that contain the phrase literally, as it was typed.

The following examples demonstrate the search charcters:

Jenna Jameson
Find rows that contain at least one of the two words.
+Jenna +Jameson'
Find rows that contain both words.
+Jenna Jameson
Find rows that contain the word ``Jenna'', but rank rows higher if they also contain ``Jameson''.
+Jenna -Jameson
Find rows that contain the word ``Jenna'' but not ``Jameson''.
+Jenna +(>Jameson <Haze)
Find rows that contain the words ``Jenna'' and ``Jameson'', or ``Jenna'' and ``Haze'' (in any order), but rank ``Jenna Jameson'' higher than ``Jenna Haze''.
Jenna*
Find rows that contain words such as ``Jenna'', ``Jennas'', ``Jennanne'', or ``Jennat''.
"some words"
Find rows that contain the exact phrase ``some words'' (for example, rows that contain ``some words of wisdom'' but not ``some noise words''). Note that the `"' characters that surround the phrase are operator characters that delimit the phrase. They are not the quotes that surround the search string itself

4. Press the GO button.

GETTING GOOD SEARCH RESULTS
To get specific results, use the boolean operators above. If you get no results, try switching to "all stock" on the search results page. If you still see no results, try a more broad search using fewer words and a delimiter such as "*", which will find words containing the characters you typed. If you are unsure about the full title of a movie or name of a studio or star, doing a partial search will find all titles containing the word you search for. For example, if you are searching for "Debbie Does Dallas", searching for "Debbie" will return all titles containing "Debbie".

USING THE - SELECT A CATEGORY- LIST
The values listed in the drop-down category list assist you in finding our product selections by their content. Pick a category from the list and you will jump to all the products in that category.
Values on the list that select racial content are sub-genres and separate from other categories on the list. This allows you to select racial criteria for your product selections (i.e. Asian) and then select a category of interest (i.e. Oral Sex). The product results will display both values (i.e. Asian & Oral Sex).
