    Search Function Question

    When viewing the help page, it offers a function to search the FAQ by "Matching all Words." Why doesn't the search function for the forums have this option? Or has it in the past, but not currently because of the recent problems? I've tried using quotation marks, the "+" symbol, the word "AND" but my search results are very poor.

    Am I doing something wrong? Or am I blind?

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    The plus (+) sign used to work before the search engine has been disabled. Now that it's enabled again, the plus sign is not working anymore. The search engine became very limited in my opinion. It's almost useless when I want to search for more than one key word.
    You can correct my English mistakes.

    And sometimes you need to search for more than one keyword. Try searching on e.g. "tube" and see how many thousands of hits you get.
