    Default Search Option????

    Why is it when I do a search.....oh lets say like the one I just did:

    "2320 battery"

    ....I get every thread thats says 2320 AND battery in the title.


    Is there a way to search with the use of two words and get any thread saying those two words in it?

    I can't seem to find that option in the search page.


    .......because, I hate to sound so negative, but a search like this is .......well.......let'as just say very tuff to use.

    If you put quotes "2320 battery" around the word combination it will search for that exact phrase.

    I also tried that here and the quotes appear to have no effect on the search results. Far as I know there isn't any TBN help info available to explain how the Search function works.

    In a recent thread, Muhammad said that the search feature is broken (it uses an "OR" keyword search rather than an "AND" keyword search) and will be replaced by a google custom search "soon"

    Interesting.... It works for me, but I'm on a Mac. Don't know if that makes a difference.
