search functionality: can we allow less than 4 character words?

9 posts in this topic

I keep trying to search for TRU SKU or Wave 9 SKU and I'm not allowed because there's an error that says the minimum number of characters has to be at least 4. In this case I'm not going to wade through 20 pages of a thread so I'm going to have to post a question that's already been answered.

I agree! Searching for something can be a crazy pain!

Search sucks royal hippogriff.

Thanks Rad. It would make the thread archive that much more friendly.

I've had this issue forever. One time I tried to search for a member's home town of "Oil City" or something, and it wouldn't let me do it because 'Oil' was too short.

Ok, I've tweaked the setting in the Admin CP to allow for 3 character searches, there are some 'quirks' that meant I also needed some other stuff changed to make it work but it should be ok.
