Default Searching

When searching the forum how do I search using two or more words.

Example: I want to search for Slimline Pro. If I enter those two words into search it returns every instance of Slimline and Pro. I want just those posts that mention "Slimline Pro".

I tried using & between the two words and quotes around the two words but neither works.

Go to the home page and search in the box in the upper left--that is a google search that will only find answers in Penturners.org

Lots of good stuff turns up, I did try it.

you can use quotes: "slimline pro". You can also use the "&" if you only want to display results with BOTH strings present. For example, you can search this: "slimline pro" & "gun metal". Be careful not to put an extra space, because "slimline pro" is different than "slimline " " pro". There are probably other tricks out there, but I use these sometimes when I am having a hard time finding exactly what I want
