    Is the search feature working for you guys when you type in a string of multiple words? It used to be that I could type in several words and the search would look for posts with all the words (like they were all attached with AND). Now it seems to default to searching for posts with any of the words (as if I were using OR). And I can't seem to use AND to modify that routine. Any suggestions on this one?

    I'm going to bump this up to the top again and hope Chris sees it as it's something I would really like to have fixed. Many forum search systems offer you the choice of "all terms" or "any terms" for results.

    It's a bug. I have a patch to apply which should address it. Focused on another project currently and cannot break away to do it, but will soon.

    That's enough assurance for me. Thanks Chris.
