Travel Forums System Talk Searching by phrase

Just a little niggle (or possibly me being a moron) - the search function doesn't appear to allow searching by phrase using quotation marks.

For instance, I was looking for the old thread about keeping fit whilst travelling, so I searched for "keep fit", but it returned everything with 'keep' and 'fit' in it. Is there an option somewhere that I'm missing?

Yes, this is rather annoying. I'm not aware of a way around it. There's actually a few other small issues with that search.... In this specific case, it probably wouldn't have found the thread even with quotes though, because the title was Keeping fit ... nevertheless, definitely a bug in my opinion so I've filed a bug report.

Thanks Rob! I've been meaning to mention that for flippin ages, and never seem to remember at useful times!

Please can we a search phrase/multiple word function? Thanks!

It's filed as a bug, along with a few other small search issues. Hopefully after the next big development is rolled out we'll have some time to look at things like this!!
