Is it just me, or do others have problems with Roadfood's Search feature?

      I find it doesn't do well with phrases.

        I did a thread on this a year or so ago. I gave specific examples. I was not smart enough to find any patterns. I just google it now. This site comes up good there.

          I'm new here, but I've noticed that the search function doesn't handle punctuation marks very well, especially apostrophes.

            I found that if you keep the search description as short (2 to 3 words) as possible it works great.. Long winded ones seem to upset this feature. I also google when I need to do an in depth, long winded description - just type "Roafood + search term". The worms at google do a mighty fine job wiggling thru all the files here..
