    The forum now features an enhanced search module that doesn't have the limitations the old search had:
    • No minimum word length, allowing nearly any search to return meaningful results. Before the shortest search term was 4 characters so you couldn't search for e.g. CNN
    • Support for returning results based on how relevant they are to your search. You can select relevancy ordering on the advanced search page (click on "more").
    • The search now uses a "stemming analyzer", so words are reduced to their roots before searches are performed. For example, a search for "tests", will automatically return results for "test", "tested", "testing", and similar words.
    I hope you find the new feature useful.
