Description

Searching for "e" for example does not return any helpful message for the website user. The method "register_and_explode_search_string" collects the search words, but words like "e" won't be search.
I consider to change the line

elseif (strlen($val)>1) {

to

else () {

(issue imported from #M860)

Even Google won't let you search for such short words (can a letter be a whole word?).

I don's see any sense in this.

Please change the bug description and I will get this in.

Hmm, can't remember why I wrote this. Anyway, can you please check if the problem still occurs in 3.8.0beta1?

#4 Updated by Michael Stucki over 14 years ago

Sorry for not implementing this in 3.8.0. I just had another look at that topic:

Even Google won't let you search for such short words (can a letter be a whole word?).

This is not true anymore. This is really weird - did you know that there are exactly 3.250.000.000 pages containing an "a" and Apple is the first match of that list?! ;-)

Seriously, I agree with your points. Let's make that change, I'll move it to my todo list.

Hi,

as this issue is very old. Does the problem still exists within newer versions of TYPO3 CMS (4.5 or 6.1)?

The problem still exists. However, it's of very low importance imho. So if someone wants to see this feature, please take over and submit a patch for it.
