I need to narrow the search parameters.  Can anyone please give some guidelines on that?   It's important for me as I use this feature quite often.

When I need to find a particular post, I enter the search code (title) of that post as best as I can recall.  The search result comes in scores of posts and dozens of search pages because it gives almost all posts that may contain even a single word typed in the search code.   So, it gets very time consuming to find the post I'm searching for.   I guess this could be because of the increase in the total number of posts in the forum compared to a few years earlier when search was easier.   Nonetheless, I was wondering if there's a way to adjust the settings of the search feature to make the results a bit more brief and accurate.
