Default Phrase Searches

Chris:
Is there some way to do a search for a phrase? I have found that the current search method provides to much information. The last phrase I tried was "Front Hitch". This gives me all of the threads that have either the word front, or hitch in them. There is so much information on the forum, this would help me find it in the least amount of time.

Thanks Rob

I have wished the same thing many times. Back in the day when I first got into computers, (my first was a TRS-80) if you wanted to keep a phrase together for a search, you put quotes around it. I tried that here and it doesn't work. In fact, with quotes you don't even get the words you're looking for! Bummer!

Default google will do the search

Go to google.com and click on advanced search.
Type in the phrase on the "exact phrase" line.
Type trailmanorowners.com on the "Domain" line.

If you are using the Google tool bar, you can enter the phrase with " "s and from the drop down next to the search button choose "current site" and it will do it for you without having to navigate away or open a second browser window. ....you also don't have to type the domain name everytime this way. \\Bill
