Are you able to exclude standard search terms in your search engine?

I am working on the demo site to validate functionality especially around search. For example, there is a post in the demo site that is called 'Do you provide Web design'.


If you search design you can find the post but if you search web or Web or "web" you cannot find the post. Is your search engine excluding some standard terms like web?

Hello Lee,


Standard limitation of mysql full text search is min 4 characters. In your environment you can put 3 characters as minimum to enter for the search results. That's why you don't get any results for the word - "Web"

Stas, have you thought about or could we actually implement an error message that states that you must have more than 3 characters? Seems like the user needs to know as they are entering a search. Thanks

We'll think about implementing it in the upcoming releases
