    Default can you support shorter search terms?

    currently search terms comprised of 3 letter words - such as BBC, SBC, 429, 454, 350, etc - won't search correctly due to the short length of the word.

    any chance to get search support for 3 letter words?

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    I'm checking with Craig on this. It may be a resource issue on searching but I will find out if we can change it or not. (I know we can but do not know if we "should" yet).

    Try searching for Ethanol, some E-85 threads will pop up, or try adding more pertinent content to you search with E-85 as part of the text of you search.

    I needed to find some info. on E-85 for a friend and this is what I did, here are my search results using Ethanol as the search criteria.

    I emailed admin and he said he would implement the 3 character search. I'm not sure if it has been done yet.

    I'm told it's implemented but database may have to be reindexed for it to work on old threads. I do not know what that translates to in timeline...
