When I try to search for "all words" I think it's pulling up the same results as "any words".
Example: I'm trying to find any posts where people were discussing the qualification tests for Beyond Hello. I put in the search words, "Beyond Hello qualification test". By selecting "any words" it should and does pull up all posts that have any or all of those words in them.
I selected "all words" so that the results, if any, would be very focused. The first result I looked at only contained the word "test" and had nothing to do with the subject I wanted. Is this the way it is supposed to work? It doesn't seem like it should be.
Also, it would be nice to be able to search within our PMs too.
There are two types of people in this world: Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data.
It's not an exact science. But searches depend on indexing and I don't know how or how often the forum is indexed. i've had trouble with searches too. Maybe there's a limit to how many words we can put in and if we put in more it can't deal with it. (e.g., if it can only handle 2 or 3 words and we put in a phrase with 4)
