    I agree...

    It is hard when you are trying to be as specific as possible, but the only thing you want to search for is a 3 letter word...

    Any idea if this will be done?

      My fellow admin on my board says he's scheming for a way to rewrite the search engine in such a way that it doesn't use indexes, it just directly queries the db.

        Is there a reason for doing that? (not trying to sound like a prick, sorry if it comes out that way) Personally, I feel the search index works great.

          The reason is that my host offers not that much space and the search index takes up a huge amount of it.

              Well, you could search directly through the post table, but that would cause a huge server load when there are many posts. vB currently only has to search through simple words, instead of long posts.
