Ignored forum search for "settings"

Post by Peter2 »

In this forum the search for "settings" is ignored. Bug or feature?

Hello Peter!

It's that annoying common word threshold limitation again :-|
https://newsgroup.xnview.com/search.php?keywords=settings wrote:The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: settings.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.

ignored: settings
This is why we decided to install the Google site search extension for phpBB.
It should give you the same or similar results as entering site:newsgroup.xnview.com settings registry ini into Google directly.
