Searching for posts that contains code can be achieved using the boolean operator hascode. More specifically, hascode: with yes/true/1 returns only posts that contain code blocks; no/false/0 returns only posts that contain no code.

Searching for posts where inline code (via backticks or <code>...</code> markdown) contains a specific <string> is achieved using code:<string>.

More search options are available from the search help center


Simply "hascode:yes", "hascode:1" or "hascode:true" should be added to search results.
