How do I search for a phrase such as N+2. I have tried quotes, etc around the phrase but still no luck. Any ideas?

Best read Ansel Adams, The negative, and all will be revealed.

Look up Zone system as well, N+2 is there.

What are you wanting to search N+2?

Perhaps we can help?

I think Alan means the search cannot find anything very short- that is, less than (I believe) four characters long. For example, it will find 'PanF', but not 'HP5' (try it!)
You probably need to think of a different way to ask the search question. As Light Guru says, what do you need to know in a more general sense??

That and search engines treat a + to mean the same thing as the & symbol.

Type or paste this in the Google search window:

site:largeformatphotography.info "N+2"

It will also find N-2, but there maybe a tighter search argument that will prevent that.

It was a general question, but searching with google provides the solution. I thought I was missing some method of searching with vBulletin, but I was not. Thanks for the replies.

Using Firefox as your web browser allows one to have a LF Forum dedicated Google search window. This may be possible through other means but to this digitally impaired user it was the simplest means to avoid the vBulletin search which, as a previous thread stated, sucks. -Chris
