Hi
Bottom left of the search page:

Quote:
Display results as: O Posts O Topics


Put a black dot in the Posts circle, Topics is the default.

If you type in "hillman dynamo", you get 840 results.

If you type in "hillman AND dynamo", you get 3 results, as the search facility is looking for those two words together, as opposed to every post with Hillman and every post with dynamo.

Hope that makes sense.

Hi
The renowned Boolean Search protocol; as well as AND you can also use OR and NOT as separators.
