3 letter Search

Post by Speedychuck » Sat Apr 23, 2016 9:17 pm

I'm sure there's a valid reason words under 4 letters long can't be searched, DDoS attacks or something. I've got no idea. But can it be switched on?

It's frustrating that there are so many 3 letter acronyms and you can't search for them. CIC, NBT, PDC, MHD, JB4... the list goes on.


This has probably been covered before, maybe I should use the search :)

Just a suggestion
'09 AW N54 135i - CIC - Logic 7 HiFi - MHD Stage2+ 98 - Wagner Evo 1 Performance I/C - VRSF Intakes - STC downpipes - 550i Clutch - BMWP Mirrors / Diffuser / Grilles / Skirts / Y-Pipe - SSDD Spoiler
12.9sec 1/4 mile @ 112mph - Santa Pod

Just use google seach and search for - site:babybmw.net (search term without these brackets) and you will find what you are after. Things like JB4 are in soooooo many posts it may take a while to sift through. HTH

3 letters is a limitation on mySQL

Tried to search for LCI - annoying that this is not allowed here.

As Tommo wisely suggested, search the forum using Google instead. I have to use it all the time for EGR, TMC, DPF, N55, PDC, etc, etc....

Google gives you far more relevant results (usually), ours just get churned out chronologically which is a major PITA!
