ok, how in the world does the search function discriminate on this forum? It has been frustrating to say the least.

I enter the two words:

bebop scales, "bebop scales" bebop AND scales, bebopANDscales

in all cases I get almost the exact same 17 pages of hits that single out the word bebop or scales, but it won't give me "bebop scales".

Is there any way to get the results for the two words together and not just one at a time?

+1 I hate this aspect of the search function here

This appears to be the most basic of keyword search functions with little functionality beyond one word. Too bad since there is a wealth of information on this site. It's hard to find enough time to wade through 400 hits to find what you really want. No help files are offered either. Is a software upgrade out of the question?

Funny, I just ran the search and this topic was first on the list. Laughin my arse off

Make sure you select 'Search for all terms' and list as 'Posts' not 'Topics', it helps a bit.

Search feature basically works but it is a freeware forum software so it's not quite the google/yahoo engine. I really don't have any trouble finding things when I search. Maybe it just likes me. Wink

Totally understand. Normally a single word works ok, but wanting to find two consecutive words was killing me yesterday. Maybe we should pass the hat for a software upgrade!
