    Default Limitation in the search function

    Dear spcnet,

    I found the mininmum of 4 letters in a word requirement of search function very limiting. Like when I'm looking for post that have 'Yang Guo' or 'Shi Poh Tian' in it, I cannot do it because of the 4 letters limit. But if I only type 'Yang' or 'Tain' there are tonnes of unrelated post that came up. Is it possible to reduce or do a away with the minimum letter limitations?

    I modified to allow for 3 letter words, though I won't be removing the limit since the search index will be too large.

    Hi SC,

    Sorry to post here, too lazy to make a new thread. I've been trying to search for a thread since yesterday and I receive the following error message:

    "Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/www/spcnet.tv/forums/search.php on line 408"

    It never happened to me before yesterday afternoon.

    Is it just me, or is the Search function becoming worse after this vBulletin update?
