    I found a new article about putting black boxes in our cars to replace the gas tax. I went searching for the original post about it by doing a forum search on"GPS" and ended up with just about every post. Am I doing it wrong? A search on "GPS, car, tax" was equally unhelpful.

    Hmmm. Lemme do some digging.

    If you know who posted, add their username in the advanced search.

    Not sure what's going on with that. Should be working with the plain ol' quick search. I'll do some digging and see if it's a reported bug.

    Yeah, something is not right. I did a thread title search for just "GPS," and the last two posts I made in Rick's also showed up. No mention of, or even sequence of those letters in either post.

    Found the issue. The minimum length is set to 4 in mysql. That's going to override anything I set in XenForo. Going to take a bit of work to get things fixed for that as I have to rebuild indexes and tables after making the change to 3 characters.

    I'll post when it's all fixed.

    So, this isn't related to that joke about the guy who tried to use "Mypen1s" as a password, only to find out it wasn't long enough? :run-66:

    Rebuilding the appropriate tables right now on the server. Will rebuild the forum indexes once that's finished.

    Depending on how badly the fulltext search DB takes a hit on this, it may dictate moving it back to 4 characters. We'll see.

    OK. See if you can find what you were looking for. :)
