It appears that vBulletin will not allow search words shorter than 3 letters. While this is probably done to allow excluding common words such as: it, to, as, etc. It causes search phrases such as:


Windows xp

XP


to be "unsearchable" and returns the following message :confused: :

vBulletin Message

The search term you specified (xp) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.


If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.
I'm thinking about upgrading to XP and trying to find the last couple of weeks worth posts to see if there have been any revelations :)


Any thoughts?


Thanks -- Steve

I have noticed that is well. It is with all forums that use this software.


By the way with XP, "clear type fonts" make my couch seem a lot closer when I'm browsing the forums, I think you will like XP.


I also noticed recently that if you hit search, at the top of a post, next to the user's profile, etc, you get a search of all of that members posts, with little quotes of each one.
