Site search


I have made some changes to the site search and am now reindexing the database. During this process you may notice that the site is a little slow and the search function returns either no data or unreliable data. The search should be a bit more accurate after this is done.

The reindexing just finished. If you notice any problems with the search post them here. Thanks.

Question about search methods for short words

Can you give me a tip for using the serach engine for finding short-named topics?

I want to find existing threads about Qt, but "qt' is shorter than the currently set word length requirement. Adding wildcards wouldn't return the results I need.

Thanks!
