Hey Admin/s

Is there any chance of tweaking the forum to allow a few selected three letter search terms such as HCG (which I’m currently collecting views on)?

I recall from my forum admin days that phpbb’s admin panel allows exceptions. Not sure about this implementation.

Everything else is just dandy thanks. Keep up the good work!

-- As @Jdave mentions try adding an asterisk to your 3-letter search. I made a post about this a year or so ago and basically that's the only remedy:

"It's an issue related to MySQL servers. that make the default to 4 letters. However, you could try adding asterisks to your 3-letter word -- for example, when I search for "trt" I get an error message and no results. When I enter **trt** and hit the search button I get numerous results to my search. I'd suggest trying that. I suppose any combination of asterisks will work as well -- a search for CJM* or *CJM should also fool the system."
