Search Function on this forum broken?

Postby ludwig on Tue May 05, 2009 6:41 pm

No matter what I type in any of the the search function boxes on this site, I get the following text:

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards

The search function ISN'T broken.....but common words that occur many times clearly show a problem...

If you search for "cobalt" this returns an error.

But search for "usa" and it's, you need to use the right word for your search...or else the software returns too many results...and clearly that might need to be looked at, in the forum configuration, if others have the same problem.


Any advice I may give is given in good faith but may be incorrect so listen to what other people have to say as well and don't blame me when it all goes tits up.
