The page says that we can "do a phrase search by enclosing words in quotes" but that does not seem to work. Ex. a search for "Strong Bad is in" yields [[Peanut Strong Bad]] and [[Living Room of the Brothers Strong]] above the obvious [[Strong Bad is in Jail]]. You'll note that the string "Strong Bad is in" is found in neither of these pages. Is the search help incorrect, or is there an error in the system? {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 00:19, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Currently this help page says that the default search method is for ''any'' of the keywords.  This doesn't seem to be the case anymore; it seems to be returning results with ''all'' the keywords, by default.  Is this the result of the recent update?  {{User:OptimisticFool/sig}} 07:14, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Quotes Searches

The page says that we can "do a phrase search by enclosing words in quotes" but that does not seem to work. Ex. a search for "Strong Bad is in" yields Peanut Strong Bad and Living Room of the Brothers Strong above the obvious Strong Bad is in Jail. You'll note that the string "Strong Bad is in" is found in neither of these pages. Is the search help incorrect, or is there an error in the system?
