    I'm trying to search for things like IRC - SQL - PHP - IPB etc. and can't - is there any chance the XF company server could be modified to allow indexing of three character items?

    Alternatively, is there a way to fudge the forum search facility to find them?

    Cheers,
    Shaun :D

    I expect once the official XenForo.com site is upgraded to 1.1 and is utilising the new search system, this will no longer be an issue.

    Shaun, try using a wildcard to make it four characters: irc*

    I've seen it in action but it's not for me to give away any details.

    I will be able to search up to two-letter brand names?
