Boolean search

In version 3.6 I can't find the boolean search option. Currently it is searching in the 'OR' mode but how can users search for combinations (AND) of words?

greetings,
John

Are you using the vBulletin Internal Search or MySQL Fulltext Searching?

Search Function

I was using the MySQL Fulltext. I changed to the vBulletin Internal Search function and finally figured out that I needed to rebuild the Search Index to make it work. It now does Boolean searches. The help section say this may be a problem on large boards, but doesn't define what is considered a large board. Currently have over 300,000 messages imported from a previous forum, WebBBS.
