    Is there a way to tweak the search feature to allow it to search for an entire phrase? Right now if you type a phrase in there, say "Van Halen rocks", even if you enclose it in quotes, it will search by the separate words (kicking out "Van" because it's too short).

    Ok, bad example - seems to work on that phrase! But put "ZZ Top" and you get:

    Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

    The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search : ZZ, Top
