How to use the tag and icon search tools

Sometimes you aren't sure what you want; you just want to explore canon in fresh ways. We have added two additional tools for searching the Portkey: by tag and by Lexicon icon.

Where are these tools?
They are hidden until you need them. On the main search page, look for the link that says "More search tools" and click on it. Two new search tools will appear.

Tags allow us to link a particular event with such topics as clothes, jealousy, the number twelve, innovation, or green. There are over 250 of these tags.

  1. Scroll through the list of tags in the box on the left. When you find one you want, click "add" and it will be transferred to the box on the right.
  2. Go to the bottom of the page and click "Find it!"
  3. Want to add your own? See the user page instructions.

Icons identify an event as connected to one of the main topics in Harry Potter such as Book icon (books) Hogwarts icon (Hogwarts) and Divination icon. (Divination).

Fun with icons: Let's say you wanted to find instances when Death Eaters had something to do with the Ministry of Magic.

  1. Drag the Death Eater icon Death Eater icon. and the Ministry icon Ministry of magic icon. into the box on the right.
  2. Click "Find it!"
