    Would be nice on the next update if the search engine could do searches for exact phases and not just wildcard seaches that can be very broad in there nature and returning far to many threads/posts to wade through..

    Thanks ...

    I take it you are referring to the forums. I have taken to using google to search forums when I want to find something specific

    This post shows how I search these forums with google. Perhaps a similar functionality could be added to the search?
