Search forum for phrase


#1

Hi

I’m having trouble searching the forums - I wanted to search for the phrase “out of space” but it was rejected because all of the individual words were too common. I tried doing an advanced search with:
+out +of +space

and the radio button for “all terms”, but same problem.

I tried doing the search in quotes, but the same problem.

I understand the individual words are too common, but I’m guessing the phrase is not. Is there anyway to do this?

Thanks,
Dave

The entire forum is run on a framework called PHPBB and the search feature isn’t very good. It’s something we inherited. I’ll think about what to do in the future.

Meanwhile, you can do this: go to google and type in

site:www.scidb.org/forum "phrase of your choice"

That tells google to only look inside our forum :smile:
