    Search terms "too short"?

    Can someone help me? There is an extensive use of abbreviations (which I like) on HF, but the Search function won't let me search for things like "TQ", "UQ", "PLUQ", "HH", "WBBB", etc...

    Am I missing something?

    If not, can somebody fix the search to allow shorter terms (just a friendly question...not trying to be argumentative)?

    Thanks!

    Check this out. It helped me a lot, not sure it will help with the search function though.

    Agreed...that article was most helpful when I started. I may have mis-stated my concern:

    I am unable to Search the forum for threads about TQ, UQ, PLUQ, HH, WBBB, etc... When I attempt a Search for any short/abbreviated term, the site tells me my search term is too short.

    Google custom site search is your friend. From Google you can enter your search term and then include site:hammockforums.net (without any spaces!) at the end and it'll only search on the hf site. For example: https://www.google.com/#h=en&q=UQ+si...orums.net&fp=1

    The site search function requires the use of atleast 4 characters per word. So while UQ won't work PLUQ will.

    As already mentioned using the google site search function is a great way to find information that would otherwise be lost.
