I was trying to search, to see if there are any posts about a company called Original Foods.

I typed both words in, and the result was 92 hits, but it said it searched for original and ignored foods. :scratchy I read the instructions for searches and tried again with a plus sign in front of each word. Again, 92 hits and it said it ignored foods.

Tried again with "Original Foods" (including quotation marks).

Here's what it said.

Quote:
Search found 93 matches
Search term used: original foods ignored: foods Search these results:


It's up to 93 because it included my above post. Now, it'll be 94.

FYI, as this is "out of the box" software, as is the case with most boards, unfortunately not something Travis can fix.

OK, thanks for letting me know. :)

Search functions rarely seem to work well on any forums. But I keep trying to use them anyway. :rofl

Hopefully I get a response from the company and can make a nice post soon. :popcorn
