Search Tips

By default, IFDB searches each list's title and keywords for the words you enter, and shows lists that match at least one of your search terms. You can customize the search with the special modifiers below. Note that modifiers with ":" parameters have to go last, after regular search words.

+word makes word mandatory - only items that contain this word will be listed.

-word makes word prohibited - only items that don't contain this word will be listed.

"phrase" searches for the exact phrase within the quotes: all of the words have to be matched in the exact order given.

author:member name only shows lists created by the given author.

You can negate any of the special modifiers by putting a hyphen '-' in front of the modifier name (e.g., -author:bob). This excludes items that match the modifier's criteria.
