Forum search ignoring words

Post by Julia » Sun Nov 11, 2012 2:31 pm

The forum search function seems to ignore a lot of the words you search for, making it hard to find stuff. Putting the phrase in quotes or adding + marks doesn't seem to make any difference.

Examples: (Some are real things I was searching for, others are example phrases I used to test)

search.php?keywords=%22original+character%22
Search found 1076 matches
Search term used: original character ignored: character
search.php?keywords=%22original+%2Bcharacter%22
Search found 1076 matches
Search term used: original +character ignored: character
search.php?keywords=%22eshuushuu+forums%22&terms=all
Search found 35 matches
Search term used: eshuushuu forums ignored: forums
search.php?keywords=%22japanese+games%22&terms=all
Search found 387 matches
Search term used: japanese games ignored: japanese
search.php?keywords=%22happy+days%22&terms=all
Search found 921 matches
Search term used: happy days ignored: happy
search.php?keywords=image+reports&terms=all
Search found 63 matches
Search term used: image reports ignored: image
search.php?keywords=touhou+figures&terms=all
Search found 151 matches
Search term used: touhou figures ignored: touhou
It's also impossible to search for "tagging team" because both of them are ignored.
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: tagging team.
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.
