View Full Version : Search limitations
03-01-2006, 03:42 PM
I just tried to do a search for fig bars, and fig was dis-allowed, because it is only 3 letters. On another forum I frequent, I know that the administrator is able to make exceptions for the three letter limit. Can you make "fig" an exception (and any other 3 letter food words, but none come to mind immediately)? Thanks.

You can use an asterix for some combinations
fig* bars worked when I tried it
Hope that helps!

Thanks, Joe. That's my usual fix, but for some reason it didn't work when I tried it yesterday (I did get results, but it didn't include some recent threads that had discussed fig bars :confused: ).
If anybody from CL is reading this forum, I just thought of another 3 letter food word that ought to be searchable: oil.

I added oil and fig. If you can think of any others, let me know.

How about "jam" and "pit" (like, "make sure you pit the cherries"). Also, "egg," "ham," "BBQ," "tea"--there are LOADS of three-letter ingredients or recipe topics. Since I'm new and didn't see this three-letter-word thing in the FAQ, what's the difficulty for the search engine w/three-letter words?

Jennifer, thanks so much!
dogzncats, I'm glad that you added to my list. I think the thing with the three letter word limit is to save "computer power" so that time isn't wasted on searching for the, of, and other common words.
If anybody else can think of 3 letter food words, please chime in! The only additional one I've come up with is wok.

Upon further review, I suggest the following:
vin (as in coq au vin)
pea (as in pea soup, chick pea)
oat (oat bread, oat flour)
soy (soy nuts, soy flour)

Just added those few.

I've had trouble with pie and ink.
