How Do I Search Phrases

Is there a way to search phrases instead of keywords?

Is it just me, or am I doing something wrong? I am simply trying to search something like, "How Much Paint Do I Need". But search omits "How, Much, I, Need," and gives me EVERY post that has the word "Paint" in it, most of which is irrevelant information. I know there are matches for "How Much Paint". I have read them. While I do understand the need to omit some words from searches, it seems like the list of words (that are "very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search") is growing? At least some of the more popular keywords.

Team Chevelle, (which I think is basically the same search engine as Team Camaro??), doesn't omit nearly as many words.

Can someone enlighten me!!!.....Confused, Jb

Re: How Do I Search Phrases

It may not help, but what you can do when you click the "Search" link is to select "Advanced Search". Then in the drop down menu under "Keywords" select the option to only search thread titles. It'll get rid of some of the bulk.

Thank's Steiner, I have done that all along. Works for some stuff, othersnot so well. I hate posting a new question / topic when there are lots of posts already with the answers. It seems that the simplest answer is sometimes the hardest to find!!!....Jb
