 Hello! I'm a fan of the DevHub but I would like a little more advanced
 search filtering keywords. These don't necessarily need to have easy UX as
 that could get messy but definitely needs documentation somewhere.

 A usecase example would be when searching for hooks, you can click the
 "Hooks" checkmark which will pull up hooks matching your query... but what
 if you only want to look for action hooks or filter hooks?

 Or, if I want to pull up all hooks or functions in a certain file?
 Available in a certain version?

 The first thing that comes to mind is what I'm used to which is the
 WordPress Stack Exchange
 [https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/help/searching "Advanced Search"]
 which uses a simple structure of `keyword:value` and could maybe be used
 here too. Possible keywords could include:

  - `type:action` | `hook:filter`
  - `file:comment.php` | `file:wp-includes/admin-bar.php`
  - `version:4.8` | `vers:4.0`

 This is something that could be built upon but I think it's a nice step
 forward without adding clutter to the clean search as it is now.
