Thanks for your input, I also hope the wpForo development team find it useful.

Can we have a reponse from that team please, or a moderator in contact with the team at least? Our users don't use tags with any degree of precision or consistency and they're becoming increasingly frustrated by the inability to do simple phrase matching - surely this should be a cornerstone feature of any forum plugin?

Hi @upstartdm,

wpForo doesn't have "exact phrase" search logic. So don't even try it. wpForo search is based on the FullText index provided by MySQL database engine. This search become more smart with the MySQL version. For example, the full-text search is many times smarter in MySQL 8.x versions then in the old 5.6 version.

In any case the best solution is adding "exact text" search option in wpForo. We've just added it in our to-do list and will add it in upcoming update. I have no any ETA yet, but we'll do our best to release it as soon as possible.

Search works very badly. Some search queries are not found at all:
