How to search

Can someone please explain to me how searches are suppose to work on this site? I get the same results when searching for the words Canada and VHF as I do if I search for Yellow and Green.

Isn't there a way to limit searches to topics only containing the search terms?

Re: How to search

dmk sails,

After you have clicked on the Search button, scroll down to the CF Google Custom Search, and write what you want to find in there. It will work.

The reason is that the latter is the same kind of search engine that Google is, and it copes better. The plain Search works fine if you remember the exact name of the thread, or want to follow a particular person's posts, but see Uncivilized's post for a clear description of the whys.
