    After a few incidents of frustration with the search page, I was thinking it would help us to add some specific three letter words to the searchable index. Not sure how hard this would be, but could you hack vB to allow some three letter words? Some of the acronym/words that I think we should allow searches on are:

    PHP
    ASP
    JSP
    CGI
    SQL
    HTM
    CSS
    XML
    XSD
    XSL
    W3C
    OOP
    CMS

    I'm sure there are lots more, but you get the idea... we could create a list of them and append to it as need be.

    Whaddya think?

    Unfortunately you can only blacklist words, not whitelist them. I think this is built into vB3, though (checking)...

    It can be done for WDF v4:
    If there are special words that are important for your board but are outside the word length limits you specified above, you may enter them here so that they will be included in the search index.

    For example, a web-programming board with a minimum word length of 4 characters might want to include 'PHP' in the search index, even though the word is only 3 characters long.

    Separate each word with a space.
