Is there any way to fix the search feature to allow for searching for shorter and special character names? As things are now, the system won't let one search for "IG-88" or "CZ-3", either due to the hyphen or length.
Great idea. We are already looking into both a tagging and prefix system for some of these (and other issues).Is it possible to add something that would allow users to tag threads? So if we're posting about IG-88 we could tag it as IG88?
The idea of including the hyphen in the search query is a good idea. As are periods if followed directly by another letter, such as M.A.S.K.
Not when using the full text search function built into SQL by design it's a 'word based search engine' thus it treats punctuation as a word break... This is built into SQL, not the forum itself but the back end OS system on the server...No way to treat the hypen as part of the word?
no no... i mean integrating google search hereOf course I do that. But it doesn't find stuff that's posted here, apparently. And what better source than the RPF?!
