how to search both words?

I want to search thread titles that have both the words WINDOWS and WRITER, I have tried different combinations such as

windows+writer
windows, writer
windows&writer

but I am not getting the results with both words in the thread title.

any tips.

Mod: I don't know if this is the right place to post this, please move it if I have posted in the wrong section, sorry about the inconvenience.

I haven't fiddled with it. Have you tried WINDOWS and WRITER?

you could use a different program i suggest "sadman software search" it has dual word searching, and it can search within files

we're talking about search on this forum... not searching computer files if that's what you're talking about.

Refine your search.

Try searching this way:

"windows writer" and
"windows" AND "writer"

Also, as smarteyeball suggested, refine your search to, for example, search specific threads, or search "show posts" instead of "show threads."

Just in case you didn't notice we have two search functions on the site:-
  1. Standard vbulletin search - this has advanced search options but constantly gives very poor results (not worth using IMO).
  2. Google custom search - gives great results but doesn't have the advance thread title searching options (not really needed anyway).

No words!!
I am running 7048 32bit, and to me it seems a bit sluggish compared to 7022. Maybe I'm just oversensitive. HA! Anyway, the one anoying thing is, that I have no words in the normal pop up boxes. How do I explain this? :huh: You know, when you click on an email to delete it for example, and you get...
