    Re: damn search

    Did you put "and" and "the" in there? If the search is anything like I think it is, it'll pull up ANY post with ANY of those words... Since nearly every single post made on this board will more than likely have the words "and" and "the" in them, you'll get results including nearly every post made on this forum. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Why do people have such a hard time with the search. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Use quotes and + when you need to. Do a search again using this: +" ant" +grasshopper
    or just use grasshopper as the search word.

    ok well i thought it was like every other search on the internet where you could just type in what you needed to find,
    now that i have been properly schooled on the use of the search,when and where do you need to put the quotes in at?

    I always use quotes around phrases and keywords. Use a + for words/phrases you want in the search and a - if there's a word/phrase you don't want in the search. I've never had a problem with the search engine here when I do that.

    sheesh...i see the problem now, its not ant VS the grasshopper...but still, i'd of thought a search on "ant" or "grasshopper" would have yielded something! /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I searched "grasshopper" in quotes, then clicked "in subject" and I came up with those
