"search this exact phrase"

this option would be a very beneficial search option. DS is a very popular board, and when you are searching for a specific thing, its nearly impossible. there are too many posts that are unrelated bc it lists each word.

Re: "search this exact phrase"

Really, I've been thinking about search function (or lack thereof) recently. Is there a reason you can't search for VB or LD or TFF??? Can we make it so we can? Really, when you think about it and look at all the posts, most people just use the well-known acronyms so it's extremely hard to find a lot of things...BG AIO for example...or BG OS. I honestly think we'd have a lot less repeat questions for threads if these were easier to find.

Searching is limited to words that have 4 or more letters. Anything less than that and it puts too much of a drain on the server.
