Although I have read the posting on searching this forum, I can't seem to make it work for me. Is there somewhere I can read more about it with some examples even about the search process. I've used searches in other software but with this I always get stuff that doesn't seem related to what I asked for. I know from your comments that many of you find this feature very helpful but so far I haven't found a way to get it to do what I want.

One very important thing is to use the AND operator when you search for more than two words.

Let's say you will search for topics that both containes the word "nucs" and the word "smoker".  If you just write "smoker nucs" here now, you will get 158 topcs that containes "nucs" and/or "smoker" not only those who contain both.  To search for topcs that have both you can type:
nucs AND smoker
This will return 2 topcs which containes both words.

There is a flash-demo (movie) at phpbb.com about searching that might help:

Eivindm is right the key is to click on the "search for all terms" box, just under where you type in the words you want to search for. I don't really know why they don't make it the default. Anyway, you have to click it just about every time I find.
