Recognize search phrases/multiple words as AND, not OR #2457
I'm not sure if this is an issue or a feature request.
All docs containing either or both words are returned. We have the word "metric" on many many pages, so these results really don't help.
Ideal: Only pages containing the exact phrase "metric proxy" are returned.
In general, if a search phrase has multiple words, without quotes, I think this should be interpreted as a boolean AND, so only pages containing both words should be returned.

I'd like to get this as one of the next steps in our Summer of Code project (https://github.com/orgs/rtfd/projects/3). Having the ability to search with quotes and other common "google style" search queries would be a really good improvement for our search.
Thanks @safwanrahman. How would I create a feature request for you guys to prioritize and determine if/when you might address it? Ideally, clicking on a search result would go to the actual matching sentence. I said heading (in my comment above) because I thought that would be more do-able. But navigating to the actual sentence or paragraph is actually what I would expect to see when I click a search result.
