    Hey, sorry I missed this message last week.

    There is currently no way to disable the "match similar words" feature of the full-text query engine. With some work it would be possible for me to expose an "exact match" option on the search page. Thanks for the suggestion and I'll keep it in mind when considering new features for the site.

    Searching exact words

    Is there a way to guarantee the search on the main page (not the forums page) will only look for the word I type in? For example, if I use the word "finale" currently the search will return posts with the word "final" and "finally" in it, but those are not the words I am looking for. How do I make sure the search only returns posts with "finale"?
