Searching the Forum

If you use the search button that appears near the top of every page.

The default search covers the last thirty days. If you need a longer period, use the "Advanced" link to the separate search page, then set your options.

You run a search and get zero results.

The search word is too short. The default word length is four characters. (not changable by you or me)
The word you searched for is in the "Full-Text Stopwords" list. There are a series of words that are excluded from the database by design because they are considered "frequent". [dev.mysql.com]
