    The VBulletin keyword search feature has problems with search terms of three characters or shorter, I'm afraid. Try searching for "tags" as well, although this only pays off if users add helpful tags to threads to begin with.

    I couldn't agree more. Many, many times I've tried to look up a thread or subject and the search just wont find it, even if I type the thread title in word for word. That's why I hate it when I see someone reply "Search the forums!" or something similar.
