    Exclamation What if i want to search for more than a single word in forums?

    I face an annoying trouble when i want to search for more than a word in forums. for example i want to search for "Xeryus Rouge" in titles only, i got about 14 pages of results (about 270 thread) for rouge alone, xeryus alone and xeryus rouge.

    I know there were an option to search for all the words or even exact phrase. i cant see anything like this now .... any help ???

    I, too, have known the frustration of trying to use the search function associated with the new forum format. It's like it searches for “either/or” rather than “this and that.”

    Sometimes I resort to going “off site” and using the regular Google search window. I type in the words I want to search and include the word “basenotes.” I don't know if that will help you. Maybe someone else knows something you and I don't.

    Thank you Quarry, the google search didnt work.
    It is common to have options to search for any word, all words or exact phrase in forums. i wonder why it is not present here?

    yes, this is a problem sometimes.

    google can help, though. try to do it like this:

    site:basenotes.net +czech +88

    the first part makes google search only on basenotes. the + sign means results must include this keyword.
