3 letter word searches

Postby rylan » Fri Apr 01, 2011 4:02 am

I have noticed that wiki search does not return results for 3 letter words. Which is odd if you want to search all the locations where the term god is used.

Does anyone know if this is a bug or a feature with media-wiki?

It's designed that way since 3 letter searches will most likely return tons of results. Like if you searched for "god", you would also get results that contain any word that has god in it e.g: "goddamn". So ya the search is pretty limited.

I'm not familiar with mediawiki, but here's a simple looking fix I googled if anyone who has the power to fix it wants to.
