Hello,

Does anyone know what happened with the "find exact phrase" option in the Advance Search section of Web Term Search? It was very useful, specially when you get 10 or more pages of the term you´re looking for.

Is it possible to get back?

Thanks,
Elena

"Match entire phrase" Jun 17, 2009

It was good enough as it was but it is now "Match entire phrase" to the right of the Search button. Conspicuous enough but, contradictorily, hard to see, as you just proved. It happened to me too.

Thanks for pointing this out. Now I know where the 'Match Entire Phrase' option is again - THANKS

I had mistakenly assumed that the only way of searching for an exact phrase using the new system was to put it between quotes, e.g. "this is the phrase", which, to be honest, is a real pain.

Now, there's no need to. Great!
