The vBulletin software specifically states that making the search criteria smaller results in database performance problems. I think it has to do with how the database is indexed.

I agree that two letter searches are good for this site and will try again.... this weekend and see if it works! I forgot to 'reindex' the search database after changing the minimum search length to two.... we will see what happens .... Smilie

OK, seems to work after rebuilding the database index...... and the size is much bigger, as one would guess......

Let's stick with the 'two letter' search for a while and see how it does......

Thanks for the good suggestion.

Thanks to all, and especially you NEO.

now that we figured out that we can search for 2 letters, how about 1?

Hmm.. and how many one-letter unix commands are there..? Smilie

And besides, I'm sure that would kill the system... imagine looking for the letter 'a'... you'd get every post on the site Smilie

We are investigating a new plugin for a zero letter search. The user simply 'thinks' the query ... enters nothing ... hits return ... and then relevant matches appear.

As soon as we get it working, will post a formal announcement Smilie

Is this part of the `.*` zero or more character search initiative? Smilie
