Question Forum search function

Question to the administrators:

Does using multiple keywords in the forum search input field broaden the search, or narrow it?

A simple search of "Original digitech whammy" seems to return posts containing the word "original", along with any posts containing the word "digitech", as well as any posts that contain the word "whammy".

What it doesn't seem to do is return only the posts that contain all three of the keywords specified, which actually would be much more useful.

Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks!

Gary

Re: Forum search function

Usually if you're searching for a term with more than one word in any search engine you put speech marks around the term, eg:

"Original Digitech Whammy"

That may do the trick.

That would be my first thought as well. In this case though, double quotes seems to have no effect.

Yeah I got that. Guess I know no more than anyone else here.
