Why Can't I Search And Find Something?

Recommended Posts

Lordblacknail

Everytime I want to search for an old discussion or topic, it never works. Why is that? I want to find a discussion on VPN's but when I type VPN in the search box, it says nothing there. I have seen hundreds of discussions on VPN's on this forum, so why can't I find one?

It's the way the software works.

Searching can use a lot of server resources.

The search engine won't search on words such as the, and, an, too, to and so on.

I think any word 3 letters in length or less will not work.

Many Acronyms, just happen to fall into this as well.
