(Boolean) "AND" / "OR" searching is now working on this forum!

Jump to last reply

Someone may come along and tell me I am crazy - - that it has worked all along, but I swear that it did not previously work.

But on a recent thread about hotels in Milan, there was a mention of hotels on "Via Dante" - - and lo and behold, these three searches really DO generate different and meaningful results:

"via dante" (works as you might expecet for via ADJ dante) retrieves eight threads - - each of which contains "via" adjacent to "dante"

"via and dante" retrieves 48 threads - - each of them contains both words SOMEwhere.

and

"via or dante" retrieves thousands - - I don't know the actual number but well over 2000.

Next test: nested ANDs and ORs?

This might signal a far easier (and more reliable) way to find old posts.

Best wishes,

Rex
