I was looking for answers to a php question regarding the max_post_size. My search term was "max post size" and it failed to pull up anything with the underscores. Also, a google search of either spaces or underscores fails to get good SO questions.

I then asked a question and now I find it's been asked and answered numerous times before.

If I have the term "max_post_size" in the title of a question ("Proper way to detect that max_post_size was exceded in php?") then the handy similar titles search also fails to pull up the duplicates.

Is this a solvable problem? Is it worth solving for better searches?

"and now I find it's been asked and answered numerous times before" -- how did you find them? –  jmfsg Jun 7 '11 at 17:21
    
One of the answers gave a link and after reading the other questions I realized I should have been able to find it. That's when I found out a search with underscores gave much better results. –  McLeopold Jun 7 '11 at 17:25

Opps, my question had max_post_size instead of post_max_size. That was probably my main issue. –  McLeopold Jun 7 '11 at 17:32
