    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.

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

    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.
