Forum search - remove 4 char limit
Hi,
I can't search for things under 4 chars.
This would include worlds like:
API
AI
sun
LOD

Etc, etc etc.

Plus, searching for:
sun.pos
sun pos
also fails, what the??

It's very frustrating :(

RE: Forum search - remove 4 char limit
Hello,

To my knowledge this is server configured constants (either php/sql), and cannot be changed by me.
Unless someone knows a way, then please let me know.

Thanks for your reply.
"If you lower the limit of characters needed for a search in ACP > Configuration > Search System > Minimum Search Word Length, maybe set it to 0"
From here:
http://community.mybb.com/thread-43184-p...#pid294945

I guess there's an admin panel for MyBB ??

If not, then I'll just use google:
site:esenthel.com SUN
site:esenthel.com LOD
etc.

That works well

Hello,

I have this set to zero, but the config says :
"Minimum Search Word Length
Enter the minimum number of characters an individual word in a search query can be. Set to 0 to disable (and accept the hard limit default of 3 for standard searching and 4 for MySQL fulltext searching). If you use MySQL fulltext searching and set this lower than the MySQL setting - MySQL will override it"

That is what I have been doing for all searching. It seems to be far more effective than the forum search anyway.
