Search... Needs Revisions

The Search... function on this board needs some revisions.

As pointed out, searching for adblock returns ...
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: adblock.


(adblockplus will be found, but not "adblock" nor "adblock plus")

Other "common" words that you would expect, or want to find, also fail to turn up.

Further the
Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards."

seems too limiting to me to.
("allowed forbidden javascript" fails to find anything, exceeding the 14 char max, I assume)

Yeah. We went through this in the EasyList forums. lanik might be able to tell you how he fixed that.

Heh, "The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: noscript."

It appears that the forum adds "common" words in an automated fashion based upon frequency used. (I know nothing of php forums.) So I'm sure it can be modified (& will) too.

Links here may help, viewtopic.php?p=3775#p3775 ?

Bumperoo.

Maybe "common words" can just be toggled OFF for the time being.

And/or is there a way to search for say "1.9.3.7" as a literal?
