Default How to use the search

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a big believer in using the search function before posting a question, it can stop that idiot feeling when the answer is blindingly obvious after somebody has given you the answer, but, how do I use the search function. I wanted to rate a thread, so I searched for the answer to 'how to rate a thread'. It immediately throws out the first four words as being too short/long etc which only leave 'thread'. You can imagine the number of pages it reported. I tried it with the addition of + between the words, same result. The answer is probably blindingly obvious but how do you use more than one word when searching.

Try limiting to just key words- for example "Rate Thread".

Thanks for the quick replies, I typed 'rate thread' and got the same result so I checked the first thread after the two stickies, it's a two page thread and half way down the first page the word 'thread' is highlighted in red, this is repeated until near the bottom of the page where the word 'rate' is highlighted. How do I get the search function to link the two words.
