Forum Search engine ..... sucks ;)

Postby Husky » Fri Aug 31, 2012 7:57 am

Many times I tried the Forum Search engine but honestly - it doesn't works well :evil:

Is somebody out there who can explain why I - most of the time - get error messages like:

Information
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: dimension scale.
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.


common words??? ............... at least one word but not more than 14 characters??? .............................. PLEASE - can you teach the Database for the Forum what are really common words in combination with a CAD Software and kill or extend this limit of 14 characters. Or do I have to search on this way: dim* sca*

I (we) try to keep this Forum clean without asking 27 times the same question - but how do I know how many times this question was ask and answered?

Yes, you're absolutely right. It's very annoying for me too. I did some googeling and might have found a way to disable that 'feature'. I'm rebuilding the search index now. It should start working correctly in a minute if it works...
