The search function doesn not understand phrases. Today I wanted to search for a thread about "best speaker ever" or "most expensive speakers" etc. Typing that in makes HTF return a post with any of the words in it. The only option is to use AND between each query word, but obviously that's not the same thing at all.

I don't know if this is a limitation of the bulletin board software, but is there any way to accomplish this?

That is a limitation of the software. To search for a phrase you have to use and/or as described on the search page.
