For some reason the search thread feature doesn't alow one to search for 3 letter words, which makes some searches difficult to do (try searching for an alt beer recipe -- it won't let you). Is this a setting that can be adjusted? I can see why and or but or yet would be excluded, BUT there are several 3 letter words that would be helpful.

I know what you mean. It's the same story on another board I'm on that uses this same software. Maybe the three-letter limitation significantly improves database searches? If it can be adjusted, here's another vote for lowering the limit to 2 letters or removing it altogether.

Yes the search feature is the most server extensive section of this software. The server we are on now needs improvement and until then I have to leave it else it will really slow the site down.
