HOWEVER, there is a catch. This is an add-on. A variation of advanced search can now be found under the Forums tab, labeled "Advanced Search".

You CAN search by 3 letter word, but the results are still not the best. For example, searching for "gun" does not bring up the official gun thread. BUT, if you search gun thread, you do get the actual result. So you need to tinker with it a bit. But, its better than nothing for now.

I read it just fine. you said if I search "gun thread" it comes up...It does not without going through all the results that contain "Thread" because it ignores gun

the problem is to get search to recongize and consider 3 letter words, which is still does not. so no change.

yeah that works.

is there a datasheet or wildcard one sheet? I noticed that advanced search is highly specific, which is good, but throws search off when using wildcards like " "

search : official gun - its there

search: "Official gun" and it isnt, because it considers you are looking for the word quoted also.

May have to put ass in quotes, since it finds words that also has those 3 letters.

maybe use *---* instead of "---" but then it might include anything with ass in a word like assassin
