    Maybe someone can answer this for me. Instead of starting a new post I was trying to search previous posts to see if anyone recently worte anything about Palace Station. So I enter Palace Station in the search and the search feature found every post that had the word "Palace" and/or "Station" in it. So i got about 100 posts about Caesars Palace and Imperial Palace and Main Street Station..... not really what I was looking for. So I tried looking it up as "palace station" or *palace station* and it did the same.

    So my question is how do you do a search for an exact phrase?

    The search function isn't as great as I'd like it to be. I haven't found a way to search for both words.

    You can use the advanced search to find Palace, Station in the titles only. I found mostly Palace Station threads that way. Or you can also use the advanced search in specific sections (like off-strip hotels & casinos).

    Sorry.
