Advanced Search options - Limiting search to only included Kanji

Is there a way to search for specific kanji compounds using Jisho.org? For example, if I inputted 草 耳 虫 糸 貝, it would only search for kanji compounds that included a combination of these kanji. I'm not quite sure how to do that and I've looked at the advanced search functions.

Yes, you can search for the kanji by enclosing each one with 's, like this: http://jisho.org/search/%20%20一*

But when it doesn't produce any results it will look a bit funny as it will try to do text analysis instead of saying that it couldn't find any words.

Also note that it will search for words that contain each kanji anywhere, not in the specific order you put them in the search.

Hmm, the forum garbled the link. Trying again.
