    Default Forum Thread Search Error

    I am trying to search the threads, but I keep getting this message:

    "The search term you specified (a) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer."

    (I have to assume that this means that the search function requires more than three words in order to operate correctly.) In fact, the search term was seven words.

    Am I failing to understand something very simple? Or is this an error of another sort?

    Any clues?

    Russ,
    The vBulletin messageboard has an error in its error message---it actually means you have to have at least 3 characters for each word.

    Thanks, Mike,

    I actually tried using LESS than three words, and it worked. However, they were probably longer than three characters.
