Try searching for a phrase like

"no problem"

notice the double quotes surrounding the phrase. 

My reading is that the search should initially limited to that exact phrase, but it doesn't.

Granted, it got a few, but the pages went on and they weren't necessarily sorted by any specific pattern.

There were "problems" a bunch of "no", even a "no"pe

It was like the search engine was trying to be real helpful but then got desperate and began answering the "question that he really meant😉

I know this is an issue with most search engines trying to please, but is there a "dial down" button to fine-tune what it offers?

Thanks.... and "no problem" if there isn't

Hi Dan, our support team made some updates to the search feature which hopefully will improve this issue. Let us know if this makes searching using quotes better than before or observations on future potential improvement areas. Appreciate your support on this issue.
