Updated Forum Search Index Min Word Length (Again)

For some reason, three char word lengths were not showing up in search results, even though the minimum is set to three and has been for a long time.

After monkeying around with this, I turned off full page search, dumped all search indexes, and re-enabled full text search and it's working again.

Full Text Search with a minimum world length of three is working (again).

If you see any problems with internal search, please post back and I'll look into it.

Does anyone think we should update this to a two letter minimum search or is the three letter minmum word length the best trade-off?

If we go to a two letter minimum word length the search index will be very large and search results slower.

Normally, if I ever need a "two letter work search' I simply use Google site search; but of course Google does not index every page.
