    Update Advanced Search to include "a word string"

    Can the search engine be updated to include a word string, "such as between two double apostrophes" ?

    To be honest, I hate forum search bars that won't search phrases, or don't have an example message box for how to use the search bar in different ways. Also hate it when they try to exclude words that "aren't specific" or too "common", and the ones that are powered by google tend to suck also.

    So, I'm all for an easy to use exact phrase, or better yet, and similar phrase searching tool.

      Searching for phrases is apparently no longer supported by the Forum's search engine. As it was supported previously, I have to assume that the developer's removed that ability for a reason such as performance or resource consumption, and that ability will not be returning anytime soon. That's unfortunate as I too find searching for phrases useful.

      Your alternative would be to use your favorite search engine, Google, Bing, etc. to search the forum using the domain filter, e.g. site: organforum.com "how to use the search bar".
