BUG: search function the second

Post by KI »

sorry, that i opened a new thread but the other one was closed. :wink:

I just wanted to know what in detail I have to change in the code, so that the search function can search for two letter expressions.

I don't feel good to use an old version of search.php. I don't know exactly what has been changed in this file...
I analyzed this file by myself, but didn't found the part where the keyword lenght is tested...

I browsed through the changelog of phpbb. The change you brought up is listed in "Changes since 2.0.0":
"Decreased minimum search word size to 3 chars"

If my memory serves me right, "user post search" was still possible in phpbb 2.0.11 for nicknames with a length of 2 letters.

My proposition for the next phpbb 2 version is to enable at least user search with two letters...

And so say all of us.

Alternatively, user names of less than three letters should be prevented from registering, but that would be most undesirable.
