    Because we have something like a movie database. Some movie titels include this words.... so it's impossiple to find the movie "Next" in title on vb. Thats why i will add some words to the search index.

      But you can simply add that word in the "Words to include" box within the AdminCP under Settings -> Options -> Message Searching Options.

      You shouldn't edit the badwords.php file. We're just going to remove your changes the next time you upgrade. Then if you rebuild the search index, the changes will be overwritten.

          Yes. Every time you change the settings for the search, you have to rebuild the search engine. Otherwise, only new content will be indexed with the changes.

                  Those are all common English words and typically provide no value if they are indexed. Your best bet is to add them to the word list. Maintaining a list of "bad words" for searching is a common practice. Search is often the most performance intensive function of a website and steps have to be put into place to control this. The word list probably works for 90% of our English customers, our largest customer base. The option is there if it doesn't work for you so you can add the words you need. It will hold 16 Million characters so you can probably add all the words you need.

                    Yes it's great for a normal forum.... but i am one of the 10%
                    The only thing is that i don't know which word are listet under common words... i will see it only after posting... so i have to rebuild the search index every time again... and it take a long time with over 31'000 topics and 44'000 posts (fast growing).
                    A cool option for vb5 are, when there is an option to switch on common words for indexing by search. It will fit to 100% to your english (and oder language) customers

                      If you manage your own server or Virtual Machine, you might want to look into using Sphinx Search. This is an alternative search engine for vBulletin and allows greater flexibilty without editing vBulletin's files. Then you can edit the stopword or common word list for it so keyword searches work better for you.
