    Default Searching for words

    Is it me and my browser or is the 'Search' facility not working?

    I have searched for some items and they haven't come up.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Try fat and tax, nothing comes up. I am sure I did a thread about this about 4 months ago.

    The search has a mimimum limit of 4 letters for the words it indexes, so yes the searches will come up blank. It must be to prevent the system indexing words like "the" & "and" etc. and keep the index fairly fast.

    I tried and nothing come up for "fat" or "fattax". However, I tried the word from the thread that first drew me into the forum and "card" came up with the threads as it normally does. Also, "birthday" brought up a slew of threads.
