    Thread Search Question

    How do I enter a phrase into the search bar? For example, I was looking to see if anything had been written about a website, Reptile Supply Co., but it searches for each word, not the phrase. Not sure what symbols to use to make it look for a phrase instead.

    Thanks in advance!

    You would use quotes..... "reptile supply company"
    Just like on google, it then searches for that exact phrase.

    Ah, thank you. I knew it was something simple. I just couldn't remember what. Everything at work uses %%.

    Another option is to use Google's site search feature. In the Google search box enter the string you want to find enclosed by double quotes, e.g. "reptile supply co", and then append to that the text:
    site:ball-pythons.net

    Don't put the www. before the web site. This will work with any web site that Google has permission to search, and it will only return results for that web site.

    Thanks. Just trying to avoid posting questions that may have been answered a dozen times already. Although, I imagine this may have been one of them.
