  • Exact phrase search

    Just wondering how to do an exact phrase search. I've tried encapsulating the phrase in "" and tried using + in front of each word. Each time it searches individually for each word.

    Try searching for a phrase that contains the word "mad", when you aren't referring to the mad ride.

    I'm not sifting through that huge search result...


    Any help would be great

    hmm normally putting "+" in front works.

    e.g. - "+yamaha +rims" remembering to put a space between the words (without the quotation marks)

            Okay... try searching this way:

            When searching and you want both words to match try your search string as "word1 AND word2"

            Similarly you can also use "word1 NOT word2"
            If you can... you MUST!

              That makes sense...

              Thanks mate I was beginning to think this thread was some kind of black hole for unanswered posts
