  • Default to 'and' For Search, not 'or'

    When searching the default is 'or' between words. Is it possible to default to 'and' instead?

    If the above is not possible, how can one force 'and' over 'or'?

    Also, why is the default 'or' when Google, Yahoo and MSN all use 'and'?
    Kind Regards

    Try typing 'and' in the search box.

    Note you need to enable fulltext search and set 'Can Use Boolean Search' to 'Yes; for the appropriate usergroups.

      The Fulltext search uses the AND operator as default.

        Thanks guys, but is there any other way? I ask as I loose relevancy and control of Message Searching Relevance Options in FullText Search.

        I have spent a great deal of time making Thread Titles very apt to the questions being asked and like the Search Relevance Thread Title Score option.
