    Is it possible to improve the search feature to be able to do exact or phrase search?

    Did you try "Sort Results by" ? There might be a few good options there, title does phrase.

    Is this a general concern or are you actually looking for something.

    Don't touch the REP!

    General concern. I posted about it around a year ago with a link to the code, etc to fix it and was told they were working on it and would be fixed soon.

    Fix for allowing EXACT searches:
    Code:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?194471-How-do-i-set-up-Exact-Search&highlight=exact%20search
    STILL not fixed.

    You CANNOT do a phrase or and search period!

    Everyone wants noobs to search before they ask well it is next to impossible to find things that just don't jump out at you!

    This very seriously needs FIXING!

    Look at the number of posts in this forum about it NOT working properly.

    HTH .... :cool2:
