Hi, I wanted to search the forum for "user's can't su" and it comes back with no matches, So I searched with "su" and still no matches, so then I searched for "samba" and I got a lot of matches, so my question is, is it my end or is it yours?
Thanks

Neither -- it's phpBB's. It's actually a feature. :) phpBB doesn't index words under (I think) 4 characters. Otherwise, it would have to index stupid things like "the", "of", etc. This sucks in certain cases (such as searching for 'su'), but for the most part, it keeps the forums, and this server, able to operate and respond in a reasonably snappy fashion.

Good thing both "wheel" and "group" are more than 4 letters, then. :)

Is it reasonable to add things such as 'su'? Or does that fall into the problem of upgrading phpBB?
