    Can we modify the search function so it can search an item that is three letters? I noticed anything under four seems to be "too short."

    Most vbulletin boards use a minimum of 4 characters. We can try 3 and see if it causes problems for the server.

    ETA: I think we'll have to reindex the database for this to take effect. This is a long process and we usually do it when the server load is light, so I'll update here when the 3-character search is in effect.

    Thanks! In the past I've tried to search things like BPA, MMR, the Gap.

    Yes, that'd be great! I seem to have trouble with this too.
