Search feature in DVDTalk
 
The VBulletin search feature is such a piece of cr*p. I tried to search for posts on the movie "die another day" and see what I get?

"The search term you specified (day) is under the minimum word length (4) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.
If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific."

Geoff you need to talk to the idiots who make this software and ask them to fix this.

If you want to search for a three-letter word, you can add an asterick. Try "die* another day*".

However, "search" is a six-letter word, and searching for 'search' in this forum would return a number of threads where Geoff notes that this is a known issue and one that will hopefully be corrected with the next version of the software.

I tried this just now and it timed out. This is an I/O intensive search and probably the reason why the coders refused to include three letter words, because they might result in more non-relevant hits than the searcher intended. But they should allow three letter words in conjunction with Boolean operators like AND, OR and NOT, which will keep the search within a restricted scope and hence makes it faster.
