How to use forum search with 3-character keywords

Postby Phil Winkler » Sep 24, 2009 9:21 am

Some users have noticed that the minimum word length to search is 4 characters. Many forums have this limit. So how does search on WNS or GPS or other 2 or 3 character words?

Simple. Just append an asterisk(s) to your search phrase to pad it to 4 characters. Many programs use the asterisk as a wild card. So you would enter wns* or gps* and click search.

The forum search does not appear to be case sensitive either.
