    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.

    Lots for me to read there - thank you 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*

    The search add-on looks good to me - we are going to consider that.

    Thanks, everyone.
