Can I limit a search to specified collections in regular search?

Yes, you can limit the search query to certain collections, either by user selection or in a hidden manner.

By default, all the collections in a basic search are selected. To limit the search to a few collections, uncheck the remaining collections and perform the search.


you can search within a specific collection or a group of collections using the "cname" parameter in Search URL.


You can also use collection-number i.e., col parameter


you can use a hidden form field(s) as below

<input type="hidden" name="cname" value="news" /> 
<input type="hidden" name="col" value="1" />
