    I got Beef with theWDF search feature. It woun't search words under 4 characters. That means that I can't search for things such as: div, not, c, can, hr,ls,lu, how or a million others. I understand that this feature can be useful, but I think the minimun should be two or three characters as there is a myriad of important words that are short, such as 'div' and 'C' and 'php'.
    I cannot self terminate, you must lower me into the fire.

    In vB3 (WDFv4) this should be fixed. Words can be 'whitelisted'. Also don't blame WDF, blame Jelsoft.

    you can search for these, try using div*, or gif*. the * is a wildcard - it will search for things beginning with div etc.

    Actually, you can blame WDF since the number of characters is changable.

    Using lower number of chars increases the search table IIRC

    Slows search time, though.

    EDIT: So blame vB for making a piglet search feature. They coulda done better (something like ebay, for instance).
