I try to search in individual subforums as well as the overall search and I keep getting a message of the search term is not 3 words or more please try again.

I'm trying to search "how to sight in a rifle"

Any help???:banghead:

I just tried it with quotes, without quotes, and with the quotes surrounded by single quotes and got 290 pages of hits each time.

Actually that last post was a bit dismissive.

Is anyone else running into this problem? I enabled boolean searching for regular users recently which should make searches more accurate (at the cost of increased work on the server), and it's possible this broke something (or made search work differently enough that it looks broken).

Can someone without admin/moderator powers try searching for the terms listed above?

Without quotes ,it says search terms too short. Jim

Not a problem, I have to get some sleep sometime today, but I thought I'd copy the screen for ya. I don't know if it helps, but I just learned how to do the print screen thing and am thoroughly enjoying it.

edit:The search below was "how to sight in a rifle"

On another note, I just tried it "how sight rifle" and it turned up some results.

Well, I won't spend a ton of time on this anyway. Gonna try and tweak search a bit this weekend, which will allow searches of 2 letter words and up but might require hours of downtime.
