    Trim : sri

    Engine : 150 cdti

    Year : 55

    Mileage : 108000

    Default 3 letter words to short for search

    Why is the search like this it's really annoying

    once seen someone mention a way around this(using a search engine)? Does anyone know..as most of the words I search for are three letters long, Nearly every other car forum I use you can put three letters and it will search...rant over

    I very rarely use the one on here as its not very good at all, and I know how some get a bit upset when you dont search before posting

    I think people get too upset over people 'not searching before posting'. It is much quicker to search than post and wait for a reply! Generally people probs don't know the search terms etc....

    That'll be because they are fed up with seeing multiple threads about the same issue or topic, and I can see their point, If a section is full of threads on the same topic.

    I'm sure there's a way of replacing the built-in vbulletin search with google, I'll investigate over Xmas and do some testing on my sites..

    I've had a look on one of my sites earlier and there is a setting to change the minimum word length, But after having a look at the support section of vbulletins site it seems that the reason that most sites have a minimum of 4 characters is because the smaller the search term is, the higher the load will be on the server and the bigger the search index will be in the database.. 4 Characters as used here is the default setting..
