Go to Android Enthusiasts site. Then type in title:calendar search into the search field. Expect to only see answers in the returned results that contain titles that have both calendar and search in the title, but no that is not what you get. You get a lot more results that do not have both words in the title.

So, how does one get the search to do the above (without resorting to using Google, Bing, etc.).

  • That behavior wouldn't make sense for that search -- how would you distinguish searching for posts that have "search" in the body and "calendar" in the title from it? Google's operators work the same way (i.e., op:x y only applies the operator to x). – Matthew Read Apr 1 '12 at 16:40
  • You are right. The syntax of searching for both foo and bar in Googles search engine would be "foo" "bar". – bgoodr Apr 5 '12 at 13:48

It's a little verbose, but it can be achieved like so:

+title:calendar +title:search

However, that's not returning any results.

To see the constrained search in action, see this link for this search:

+title:calendar +title:facebook
