    Is there any way to setup an alert on classifieds by specific fields, not just keywords?

    I'd like to setup an alert for any new 6 string bass guitars being sold.

    To my knowledge, no. You could create a workaround and do a separate keyword alert for “6 string” and “6 strings” for only the BG classifieds, but then of course the seller would have to put that phrase in the body of the post. You’d probably get some alerts, but miss just about as many.

    I have a question:

    If you want to search by two keywords, for example ("Fender" & "Fretless") but you put each keyword in its own field, it will find one or the other, and doesn't require BOTH to be in the results.

    If you put the phrase ("Fender fretless") in one keyword field, will it only return a result where the classified ad has the two keywords in that exact order? If there is an ad with the title ("Fretless Fender Jazz") for example, will that trigger this rule?

    I really wish the multiple keyword fields available worked as "AND", and not "OR", which would solve a lot of ambiguity.
