Hello,

I thought that users could figure this out themselves but it seems that some are still having problems using the search function.

Most notably, people seem to be having problems doing short queries such as "2.6" and "QT". There is a very simple "fix" for this, surround your search with wildcards.

IE, search for 2.6 and you get "no results", but search for *2.6* and you get fairly relevant results. Same with *QT*.

Of course this is obviously not the best solution to the problem, but IMHO it's better than not getting any results at all.

I just thought I'd share that with some members.

Thanks, wasn't sure where to put it so I left it up to the admins to deem it worthy of the FAQ or not :wink:
