I could not find an advise how to do a search with multiple words,
e.g. " IP Engineering Albert Diesel " or " wooden platform ".
Any hint is highly appreciated!

Thank you!

Andreas,

is it not as simple as "wooden platform" with the Quotation marks included, looks to work my end?

Andreas you seem to have spaces between you quotation marks, I find quotation marks works fine

Once I did the search with quotation marks, it works!
And - it does not matter anymore for all subsequent searches whether with or without quotation marks, including spaces or not.

Grazie mille!

I have found that the search does not like words under 3 letters, thus the ‘IP’ may have bombed out the search. Not even in Quotes, just tried it.

There are at least three interpretations of searching using multiple words.
Take " narrow" and "gauge".
I could want to search for postings that that the words "narrow" or "gauge"
I could want to search for postings that had the words "narrow" and "gauge"
I could want to search for postings that had the words adjacent like "narrow gauge"
These would give three different results.

Perhaps the admins can please let us know more about the search facility? Or point to a help document?
There's lots of useful articles in this forum but it's very hard to find them sometimes.
Thanks
