Updated Forum Search Index Min Word Length to 2 Chars and Added Quick Search Bar

However, these searches fail:
If anyone is an expert in MySQL and knows how to get around this limitation without setting the min word length to one, please let me know. I'm not inclined to set the fulltext search index to a minimum word length of one.
