To get the results above, I can only assume that you were inputting red fox without double quote marks before the r in red or after the x in fox.
To perform a phrase search in Greenstone you need to enclose your phrase in double quote marks.
I assume you are inputting
Red Fox i.e. without quote marks.
what you need is
with double quote marks.
Greenstone supports the * wildcard in mgpp and lucene, so if the indexer for your collection is set to mgpp or lucene (rather than mg), search queries such as re* or fo* would work, but dont seem to be what you are after. It looks as if simply adding double quote marks above will suffice for what you want to do.
