I want to search for strands on "VAT" and "tax". Unfortunately the site gives me an error

One or all of your search keywords were below 4 characters or you searched for words which are not allowed, such as 'html', 'img', etc, please go back and increase the length of these search keywords or choose different keywords.

I realise there is a reason buit is there an exemption table you could use so I can actually search on 3 letter words that would help andwer my questiosn please?

Ta

Steve

Hi, unfortunately it's a general limitation, I don't think there is anything we can do about it. There is a setting in IPB to reduce the number of characters in a word that can be searched, but mySQL overrides this.

on another forum I use they had the same problem but they found a way of adding a list of 3 letter keywords that were often searched for (using a poll) I thought 3 letter words were not included because it bit a huge strain on the servers?

This search issue should now be resolved with the addition of the Google search option, it searches the entire site smile.gif

I agree that this 3 character limitation is rather a pain. I'm trying to search for SEO mods but that's not really possible. The alternative I suppose, is to use google to search the site.

Use the Google white text entry box at the bottom of the menu.
