XF 1.4 Search is weird / not very good


Formerly mugtree
If I search for a term called "crb" into the search when on the forum list page I get no results even though there are topics on this.

If I then click into our top forum "General Discussion" and do the same search I do get results (although not great I might add).

Ps _ I have spoken about this before, the search is definitely case sensitive.

By default, MySQL doesn't index terms of 3 characters or less. Changing this requires a change to the MySQL server config itself (therefore requiring root).
