Today was I searching for a thread I knew I read in the FAQ on ARP head studs.  So, I went to the advanced search button and typed in arp/ checked "search titles only" / and selected the FAQ forum.  The search revealed nothing.  Yet, when I manually went to the second page there is was.  What the heck?  Does our search only search exact phrases?  For instance, the real title of the thread is: valve cover hitting arp head studs?  Do I need the WHOLE exact title?  If so, I've never encountered a search feature like that before. From my understanding of search Boolean, I should be able to type ARP and get all the thread titles w/ ARP in them in the FAQ forum.  I've had trouble finding things I've read previously before using the search button on this site and it's getting under my skin .... lol.  Any help from admin?

I wanted to add .... I tired it upper and lower case, quotes and no quotes, and titles only checked and unchecked.  Nothing.  

Somebody else try it and tell me what you get.

Komeuppance PM'd me and said search words have to be 4 letters or more.  Hopefully that helps anyone with the same problem I was having.

Another good thing to do is also check "do not show post preview", the page become a lot less cluttered.

Yeah, I knew about that.  I always check that off.  Thanks for all the help everyone.
