    Is it possible with the software to do quote searches to find exact matches of multiple words?

    It's no big deal to me as I don't expect much from forum search functions, but I thought you guys might want to know.

    Oh yeah we definitely want the feedback. Just to let you know too, Jim had been messing around looking into trying to replicate the problem by setting up accounts to do testing but he could never get the same thing happen as you have going on.....it's all weird but like i said we like the feedback. Thanks,.

    Until that time, you can always do as I do, I perform directed google searches, so just type in: cck site:kitchenknifeforums.com

    That will give you site-specific CCK posts.

    This is also what I do when I want to narrow my search with quotes too. For instance, when I search on google for "kramer article" site:kitchenknifeforums.com in quotes it will bring up that exact series of words and thread on KKF with out sorting through all the posts that just say 'kramer' in it.

    I've used it and it's worked great for me. If I wanted anything more, it would be a preview of the page text with the search term in it.

    But I just click on the likely threads I'm looking for and ctrl+F to find it.

    This is what I have gotten accustmed to doing for forums in general, so like I said not a huge deal to me.

    I will note just so we're all clear, searches with 4 or more letters work fine.
