Default Search terms too short

B&A, as in B&A gel is too short a search term. Can something be done about this?

I just tried to do a search for (the movie) P.S. I Love You, and the P.S. is too short. Frustrating : (

I've never had a search work for me, the one i tried recently was "How to Plop" and "How to Bump" and I got nothing.

Search seems to be broken right now. I searched for "say it i dare you" and got the following:

Quote:
The search term you specified (it) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer. If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.

Search is working fine for me.

NOPE, I can't tell you how many times I've searched for things that I KNOW have been discussed and I get NOTHING. It's really annoying when I know I've seen a thread started on a subject and then can't find the darn thread!

The way to get around this problem is go to google/yahoo and search for whatever you want through there. It'll come up. I've never been on a forum where you could search for anything with less than four letters, so I doubt anything can be done.

Yep. And I've not had this problem on other sites, either. It especially shouldn't happen with terms like "leave in". It kinda defeats the purpose of having an site search engine if you can't use it to find the most basic curl-centric things, lol.

If you could search for a phrase it might help. But even if you try you get an error if any of the words in a phrase are under 3 letters. His suggestion really doesn't work at all in an attempt to do any searches. There's no "include all words" option or anything....

Thanks! That worked for me!

I think I'll try to type leave-in as opposed to leave in now to make it easier to find in a search.

I'm so sorry search is less than adequate.
I'd be grateful if someone would write up a graf or two as to what "dream search" would be, and then I can go about seeing how to get it done, though it likely won't be til Q1 2009.

But I do want you to know we're listening and doing what we can, as we can!
