Joomla forum stripping search queries

Post by CMSwithMe » Wed Dec 11, 2019 12:17 am

So, today I was doing some research trying to get a better handle on rss within the joomla environment. Generally people go to the forum first when trying to figure out something. That's what I did. Unfortunately every time it attempted a search involving rss, the rss was stripped out by the forum :-\ (see screenshot). Would one of you great and exalted forum admins please fix this.

The minimum number of characters indexed by search is 4, set in the database configuration, which is outside the area we humble forum admins can touch, but we will check if anything can be done.

Unfortunately changing the minimum number of characters from 4 to 3 would increase the load on the server and it has therefore been ruled out.

If you prefer other search engines, the method suggested by @Webdongle works also in Bing.
