    An enhanced forum search engine has been installed which will return improved search results. There is no minimum word length so searches for terms like “C4”, “C6”, “302” are possible. The search engine also has a stemming analyzer which separates words based on spaces, some punctuation and reduces words to their root. This allows a search for "tests" to automatically match results for "test", "testing", "tested", and other similar words.

    On the advanced search page, search results can be returned by order or relevancy.

    The “Searching the Forums” guide has been updated with information on the enhanced search.
