Search Requires 2-character words
« on: March 30, 2022, 01:30:36 PM »
So, for instance, you can't search for 'Photo Mechanic 5'.

Seems very odd that you cannot search for a Camera Bits product on the Camera Bits forums!

Please change to allow one-character words in the search field.

Never seen this limitation in other searches on the Web or in other forums.

The forum functionality is not maintained by us.  But you don't have to use its built-in search engine, you can use Google.  Enter:

Photo Mechanic 5 site:forums.camerabits.com

And you'll get good results.

HTH,

Thanks. I forget about using 3rd-party search sites to search on a given forum.
