Search logic in the discussion forums (use '+' to get 'AND' logic)


when searching the discussion forums, the search terms are combined with an 'OR' logic.

Personally, I would prefer an AND logic.

But maybe other users also don't know that there is a possibility to have an 'AND' logic in the current application if you use '+' between the words, so....

In the descriptive text above the forum search, could you add a comment that tells users to add a '+' between search terms if they want an 'AND' logic?

    Hi Ruth,

    Thanks for posting this information. I have an email in to our platform team again to see how we can change it.

    Best, Mark.

      And one more suggestion to the <b>Search Engine</b> would be, it should not be fetching all the replies to a particular post as separate search results.

      For eg: Lets say User A has posted a topic say "Issues with RFC", all replies to this need not be fetched, just the starting topic would be great and an icon indicating whether the question has been answered(or relevant status).

      Thanks Gregor for pointing that out, got psyched out, at first, but nevertheless, learnt something new.
