Is there a way to search for an exact phrase in a post? I've tried to use quotes around the phrase in the advanced seach mode, but that didn't work. I was hoping this feature might appear in the upgrade.

I'm stumped by this as well. Anyone?

I've tried that too -- only get each word individually in any given thread. And there are hundreds of them, with hundreds of posts in each one to go through. Not a concise way to find something.

Frustrating. :(

Any idea on how to do this?? I've been "search"ing in other threads here and haven't found the solution yet.

Looks like a sort of.

If you type your phrase into the search enging in parenthesis, it brings up the phase in preference to the individual words, but still brings up some of the indicidual words. (did that make any sense?)

e.g.

"dilemma right now" gets two threads

dilemma right now gets hundreds
