    Hi all,

    Looking for G&L related threads, in this subforum and classified... Just can't figure out how to do it!

    I can manually browse for these threads, and I see them but the search function returns nothing! Tried G&L, "G&L", G L, but no success.MJF$#


    Thanks in advance!
    Sebo

    You are asking the wrong people. It is the search engine problem not a CGF problem. You can't search for strings of 3 letters because it's too short. Period.

    Go to google and type Canadian guitar Forum G&L and you will find some hits. Clcik on the more results from www.canadaguitarforums and you will get every G&L hit on the site....

    In this case the problem isn't the length of the search string as the search engine is supporting three characters strings (try CLF). With the proper escape character for ampersand and the proper configuration option for the encoding, we should all be able to search for G&L. Right now, since the & character is invisible, the search engine thinks that we're searching for two characters, G L.

    I'll try to get in touch with admins to see if I can help with fixing that up.
