Default Advanced search suggestion

I was wondering if there has been any thought of adding to the advanced search features?

Here are a couple suggestions that I think would be helpful.

1) The ability to search for an exact phrase or word combination - when in quotation marks like other search engines use.

For instance right now - if you are looking in the gifted section for something like a Christmas Tree Hat the search pulls up any thread that has those three words anywhere in the thread.

If we could use quotation marks around those three words like "Christmas Tree Hat", the search would only pull up threads using that exact combination of three words.

2) The ability to search only the first 2 posts in a thread. Right now we can search the titles only, but again if searching for something in the gifted section - it pulls up any threads where those words are mentioned anywhere in the thread. Since the GE list and wants are in the first two posts of the thread, it would make it a lot easier to find what we are looking for if we could narrow down our search that way.

WI is a fantastic place, and I appreciate the opportunity to offer suggestions that might make it even better.

(I hope this is the right place to post this thread - If it would be better in the gifted section - I won't be offended if it gets moved there.)

Blessings

I'm not sure if vBulletin has those options. That's a question for Justin. He'd know.

Thanks so much!

How wonderful if he could check into it.

I have tried the quotation marks with the current set up, and they do not work. It would be great if there was an easy way for him to make a change.

Thanks!

Yes, I think about it whenever I do a search. I used to use the search more, but it takes so much time to go through every thread with that combination of words and then do a ctrl F word find to look for exactly what I am looking for (and then usually what I am looking for is not on the GE list but something buried in the thread) that I don't use it all too much any more. I don't know if those options are even feasable or not, but would be a nice addition to the advanced search.l Blessings

I would love to see some advanced searches, but mostly I just need to learn how to do general searches. It takes me a while to find my way around, and I keep thinking that I am probably doing most of it the long way, so I would love anything that would speed things up.

I think a couple more options would make the searches go much faster. Thanks for your comments.
