Default Search results

You should be able to search any word, it shouldn't have to be 4 letters long.

The trouble is it would return too many results like 'a' thats why google and stuff don't allow it either.

Could it be set to take out the words like 'a' and 'the' but leave other words alone like 'xp' and 'CPU', like google does.

I do understand what Dishdog is getting at though. You might not be able to think of 4 things to search for.

Having only one simple one would still reveal alot of results, but could be used to find the one word in the posts and give the appropiate results.

Doesn't the search work in that way? Finding thread names with what you've searched for, or from whats in the posts?

You don't have to search for 4 things, the word must be 4 letter. Like 'cat' is too short.
