syntax for searching for multiple keywords?

is there a syntax for searching for posts that include many keywords? or exclude certain keywords?

for example, if i wanted to search for elmo's potty time dvd, and put in
elmo+potty+time
i still get everything that has either elmo, potty, or time in the post, but not necessarily all 3.

Re: syntax for searching for multiple keywords?

No one seems to have responded to this, but I want to know too! I remember seeing somewhere that Boolean searching is supposed to work but I've tried everything I can think of and always seem to get every post that contains every word I type (so not very handy for narrowing down results!). I'd like to be able to search for exact phrases too (in quotes). Help!

Steady on! This now seems to be working: try something like Tots+Bots. Hooray!
