    Chuck, any chance that we could allow 3-letter words in the searches? I couldn't even do a search on 'dump bed' in the truck forum. Other times I've had problems, too, that's just the most recent one.

    I changed it to 3 letters now, so search away. :)

    I've also noticed that there is no more option for searching in either subject only or entire message....why not? That was useful.

    I just chatted with Pierre-Luc and he said we have to rebuild search index in admin control panel and he will do that in the early AM when the forum isn't busy. The 3 letter search will then work. :)

    He is also going to check on adding the thread search.

    BTW, welcome back Vibe Ray

    The search index is now rebuilt, so you should be in order to search for "dump bed" :)

    You now have the possibility to search only in post titles... if you still need thread titles only, please tell.

    Thanks!

    A search feature I would like is:

    The dates are from "in the beginning". It would be nice to have a date field for specific dates. For instance, I have started from the beginning and am reading through the old posts, when I stop at March 15th 2000. Then want to resume my reading on a future visit, I must start my search at "in the beginning" then keep clicking "next page" repeatedly at the bottom, to return to the March 15th 2000 posts.

    Not a big deal, I think it would be a nice feature to lawnsite historians:)

    Thanks again for this site!
