How To Search For A Phrase Or String Of Words

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to search for a phrase or string of words? I am looking for Steering angle sensor and I get all sorts of sensors and have to read through them all to find the one I am interested in. I have tried enclosing the word in quotes and that did not help. I am using Linux and Firefox as my browser. Any help/advice would be appreciated. I looked for a general forum to post this question and could not find one so my apologies in advance if this is the wrong forum for this post.

A search for "steering angle" in quotes brought up a bunch of relevant posts on the first page of results. I've seen Loren suggest searches like +steering +angle, where I assume the plus prefix means AND between terms.

Try +"steering angle" +sensor as your search term. The + means the search item must exist. At least, that's how it's always worked for me. Put a phrase to search for inside quote marks

A complete Search engine overhaul is coming in the next software release (3.1). I am testing it now so we are likely just few weeks out.

I'll try to post more details in my blog soon....
