Will we be able to have three letter search on our own forums?

Maybe one where we create a list of allowed three letter word searches?

It's really just down to the word length settings on your MySQL server. It's a shame that defaults to 4.

When I get that changed on my server, I am guessing we can either exclude or include words on the three letter search like and and the?

Stop words are handled by MySQL; you can't change the existing ones. It's possible to add your own stop words in theory, though it's not implemented at this time.

Good idea.

It's because it's using FULLTEXT MySQL search on the tables, right?
