  • [Forum] Search 3 letter words

    I had a look for the same issue, but they were old threads.

    My site can't search for 3 letter words. I know it used to, and from memory it was a config file I could change that would allow it. The search settings in admincp is set to 2 letter words, and finding 3 letter words doesn't work, but 4 does. So there is a setting/file that I need to set/edit somewhere?

    Am running 4.1.1

    PS - Am rebuilding Search Index at the moment too

    This is not a config file change. You'd need to change settings on the mysql server level.

        Yes, though if you have access to root or access to edit the server configuration, we'd recomend sphinx vs the fulltext vbulletin search.

          Yes if you can install SPhinx, vB has provided an (unsupported) Sphinx plugin which I am using with great success on my site. So I can vouch that it works if you follow the instructions carefully.
