: To moderators: Effective searching?

Is there a way to do a boolean "and" search? For example, when I choose Advanced on the "Search this Forum" option, I want to have the ability for the keywords I enter to be separated by "and" instead of "or".

Right now if I type in "front head restraints", the search feature gives me every post with the word "front", "head", or "restraints". How do I get it to give me only the posts that contain all the words?

I can't do anything about this, but i can pass it on to site support/head Mod Sal.

We have two ways of searching the forum.

84419

The box with the faint 'Google Search' supports all the Google Search options. The 'Avanced Search' link just below that is a search command provided by the board software and is VERY different. Try both and you should find a way to get just what you want.

This probably is of no help but I remembered it so thought I'd try to post it just in case. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/2004-2007-cadillac-cts-v-general/217095-how-search-quickly-efficiently.html?highlight=how+to+search

My recommendation is go to www.Google.com.

Then type in "cadillacforums.com" + search topic. I typically find threads faster using that method, as opposed to using the forums search function.
