Searching in the Forum

In the search window you can search for any word.
If you are looking for 2 words and want the results to be only on these 2 words in sequence, enter quotation marks before and after. For example: "security certificate". Otherwise the results will bring you everything that appears in the certificate / security separately.
The same can be done before and after quotation marks on each of the words, and the result will be only those words, even if they are not in sequence.
