Solved: 3 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks ago "search term length is 3" Too Long
#1
Solved: 3 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks ago
Hello,

I have a website http://sinomedphys.com (built with MyBB) that is purely Chinese language based. For searching Chinese term, word with 2 Chinese characters is very common, sometimes even word with just one character. So many times searching something becomes impossible.  Is there any way to change this "search term length is 3" to 2 or even 1?

Thank you very much,
Jason

forum admin panel >> Configuration (Settings) >> Search System >> Minimum Search Word Length
change the value as required (2 or 1), save the settings and check if it works for you.

Bear in mind though at MySQL fulltext search is limited to a minimum of 3 characters too (I believe that's why we set it to 3), so it might not actually have an effect if changed to 1 or 2.
