    Hi,

    I just tried the following search of the forum.

    Search Results for Query: xmp sidecar dng

    When the search returns there is the following qualifying statement:

    The following words were not included in your search because they are too short, too long, or too common: xmp, dng
    This completely thwarts my search since I want to find discussions with all three terms not just for sidecars.

    Is there a way to instruct the search to not ignore any term?

    Also I cannot find a link to the forum software help pages which might include my answer.

    tks, louie

    Thanks John,

    That worked nicely, I forget about the "site:" option.

    FYI: It doesn't seem that the results different with or without the "+" signs.
