Find pages containing a string: {{Search|string}} finds all pages containing the string. Searches are case sensitive. In order to find both xyz and Xyz use a regular expression: {{Search|[Xx]yz}}.

Regular expressions use a perl like syntax. Special characters like '[', '[','(' and ')' need to be escaped.

No wiki expansion takes place before passing arguments to the template.

Example: {{Search|1=Learn more}} gives

{{#dpl:

 |namespace = Main
 |nottitleregexp = .*((/[a-z][a-z](.|-..)?)|([ _][(][a-z][a-z][)]))$
