Searching for Claims
The search feature on Kialo displays results most “textually similar” to the words searched for.
To search Kialo for a claim:
- Click the search icon located in the top-left of a discussion.

The menus below the search bar allow you to specify what and where to search for:

- The second menu has the option to limit the search in the current discussion, or search all discussions on Kialo.
