Searching the forum archive for a phrase

Unread postby GeoffSmith » Thu Feb 19, 2015 10:55 am

I'm finding it impossible to search for a phrase, specifically Old Kent Road
Using single quotes, double quotes or none, gives exactly the same results.
Putting the phrase in special quotes, or replacing the spaces with underscores (works on some systems) gives hits for Kent only.

The best I can do is to tell you that the phrase has only appeared in one thread on the forum, back in 2008:

http://forum.signalbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=588&hilit=old+kent+road

I can't see any better way of searching, but one of my colleagues may be able to help.
