Searching for a phrase

#1 Post by Scientist and Saint » Thu Jun 07, 2018 5:45 am

Am I right that the search facility here does not support searching for phrases, only individual terms, or multiple terms with OR or AND relationships?

I resorted to Google advanced, but that's a bit of a faff, so I just wanted to check if I was missing a trick, or if I really do have to use Google to search for "foo bar" if +foo +bar is not what I want.
