    Here's the problem:

    I was trying to search the forums for references to Disney's D23 since I'm thinking about joining it. I KNEW I had seen threads/posts about it in the past. Well... I go to search and use "D23" as the search term and I get no results.

    It tells me it can't find anything! Zip, nada, bupkis! :bugeye:

    Not one to leave it at that, I start plowing through the forums, looking for the elusive threads/posts.
    Lo and behold, I find at least one here: D23 thread link

    So... which is it? Is the search engine having a bad day or am I?

    Tom:)macwave:... I'll take my pills and lie down now, thanks!)

    If it`s any consolation Tom, I couldn`t find anything either relating to D23 when I did a search, however searching for "DisneyD23" threw up loads of suggestions which isn`t surprising seeing the nature of this site! :lol;

    I think part of the problem may be that the search engine is expecting 4 or more characters.

    I thought about that also but it doesn't say there's a 4 character minimum anywhere that I see. I do know other forums that use this same framework DO have a minimum on the search length. Just didn't know if we did.

    Tom :)macwave:... searching... searching... searching...)

    I am having the same problem. It's such a surprise coming from a company like ... Partial searching is not permitted in Google search either. ..... Having designed several document search engines myself I have a vague.
