  • [Forum] Search function not working.

    Rebuilt the search index last night.

    Vbulletin options, min length set to 3.

    Any suggestions?

    vB4 uses mysql fulltext searching, not the vBulletin internal searching which was an options pre-4.0. If you wish to search for 3 character words, you need to set the ft_min_word_len in your mysql config file, restart mysql, and then rebuild the search indexes. See this -
