    I'm having difficulty using the SEARCH function. I want to return all posts with "old ammunition" in the title. I choose "old AND ammunition" for the key words, but I don't get the results I want. Am I doing something wrong?

    I just bought up 3,231 matches by typing "Old Ammunition" (minus the quotes) in the keyword search. Are you sure you are typing it in the keyword search and not the user name search?

    I want the key words to be in the titles, not the posts. And I want both key words in the titles.

    I get 98 returns, but this is still not correct. Instead of a JOIN the AND operator is working as an OR operator. The 98 returns are titles with "old ammunition", "old", "ammuniton".

    Attached is a snap shot of the search.
