I am wondering if I can use boolean terms for search, or if not, witll that be a part of any future updates to DKos.

For example, if I want to make and save a search for issues related to space, I might want to search for the following keywords:

Space
SpaceX
NASA
Moon
Mars
Starliner
Artemis
SpaceExploration

and so on. In other words, I want to do a search and I want results that contain any one or more of those keywords, rather than having to do multiple separate searches for each individual keyword.

How can this be done, if it can be done?

    Hello, and thanks for your inquiry.

    The current search function is soon to be updated. At the moment, searches on keywords are rather...unpredictable, which is part of the reason for the change. Currently, the inclusion of two (or more) terms seems to return results as if an implicit AND is present in the search. I'm not sure what the new constraints/features will include, but I can investigate.
