3-letter-word search still doesn't work

It is frequently advised that one should use an asterisk at the end of a word when trying to do a 3 letter word search. This doesn't actually work properly.

For example, if you want to find all messages with the word "dog" in them, and search for dog*, you will not find a single message with the word dog in it. You will, however, find messages with the word dogmatic, dogs, dogeared, etc.

In other words, it only works if the 3 letter word you are searching for is part of a longer word, specifically, if it has letters after it.

In the same way, searching for *dog will also not find any messages with the word dog, but it will find hounddog, topdog, etc.

If you want to test this out quickly, do a search, Titles only, on the word bex* in the Vancouver Massage forum. It will tell you there are no matches, meaning there are no messages with the word bex in the title.

Then go to the vancouver massage forum, where there are plenty of messages which have the word Bex in the title.

Is there any solution for this?

Re: this is what you need to do

*bex

not bex*

viola
Nope, that doesn't do it.

As I explained originally, searching on *bex will only find messages with words that have other letters in front of bex, like cybex or ilikebex or whatever.

So yes, doing a title search in the vancouver massage forum on *bex will at least find a few messages, since there are titles like "[email protected]", but this only gives you a small percentage of the actual messages that are out there.

I'm bumping this thread up. Am I the only one who has noticed this in all the time this board has been up? Am I the only one who cares?

What I'm wondering is *why* Chris22 used "dog" as his example.

If you're looking for 'dogs', try Ssssssssssssssssssssssssssshawna... but if you're really looking for a dog...um... try the SPCA...and we don't want to know anything else about it...

:p

Sure, we're all disgusted by people who are sexually attracted to animals, but maybe we should envy them.

I mean, you can get a dog practically free in the paper, have sex with it whenever you want for free, only cost is $20 per month for dog food. The dog will love you, as dogs do, it won't fight with you or leave you for another owner. It will never be too busy to pay attention to you. It won't mind if it catches you sleeping with another dog.

Other than the fact that it's totally disgusting to me and about as erotic as dental surgery, it sounds great.
