    Examine Search Character Minimum

    Hi -- Looking at creating a search page for my new Umbraco 8 site and finding that the search returns nothing for 3 or fewer characters. I wasn't doing anything fancy, just

    Umbraco.ContentQuery.Search(this.Query, culture: string.Empty)
    

    If this.Query is 4 characters long, I get results, and for 3 characters I get 0.

    Same thing happens in the back office if I try searching for 3 characters vs 4.

    I'm sure 3-character searches must work, since this page yields results: https://umbraco.com/search/?q=umb

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Did you find a solution to this? I am currently facing this same issue.

    Nothing yet. Maybe it'll percolate up with some activity.

    So my issue might be more to do with the Stop Words that comes with Lucene. You can't search for "AT" or "AND".

    My problem is AT is something someone might search for on my site, so I am having to looking into a custom analyser:

    I am running into this problem as well. In my case, I'm trying to do an examine search by state codes ("WA," "FL," etc). Any luck with resolving this issue?
