Search keyword logic (fuzzy logic)

When exact matching is disabled, then there are 4 possible logics to choose from:
  • OR (default)
  • OR with exact word matches
  • AND
  • AND with exact word matches
The default is "OR". For more information about the logics please read search logics explained
