    Default How to search for more than one word?



    How do I search for more than one word. For example, if I want to search for Starblast 4.5 EQ, it seems like the search only works for the first word in the search box. Any ideas?

    Make sure to click on the 'advanced search'. It should then search for all the included words.

    Be aware, though, that the search engine does not accept words of 3 characters or less. So it won't accept "4.5" or "EQ".

    Dang, I thought you had said search for more than one world... and I had just read a good article in Discover Magazine on this subject. Maybe another thread. Sorry to intrude.

    Searching for more than one world wouldn't be in the beginner forum..... I'd need to be at least an intermediate for that..... I'm glad people on this site share my warped sense of humor
