XF 1.4 Search Expression Minimum Length

#1
Hi. I am administering/moderating a forum where a particular three-letter acronym is something I'd like our users to be able to search on - where might I find an option that lets me allow this, either simply as a shorter minimum length or perhaps allowing certain words less than the minimum to be real search terms.

We are running 1.4.8.

Thanks very much.

I had the same issue, you can get the enhanced search add on, or else let users know to use a wild card asterisk to search.

For example the basic search will not find STM unless the user searches for *STM, STM* or *STM*
