This may be possible but I havent figured it out.

Wish there was a way to search for short words.

They have to be 4 letters but I want to search for shorter such as:

sak
fak
bob
can as in billy can

and many others

When I run into this problem I just use a Google search; it usually does a pretty good job. Add "site:www.bushcraftusa.com" to the words you're searching for and Google will only look for results on this forum. Here is an example search for "site:www.bushcraftusa.com sak" (http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awww.bushcraftusa.com+sak&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a).

That's pretty easy - go to google and search for:
sak site:www.bushcraftusa.com
fak site:www.bushcraftusa.com
bob site:www.bushcraftusa.com
can site:www.bushcraftusa.com
You can also click on 'advanced search' and type www.bushcraftusa.com or www.bushcraftusa.com/forum into the 'Search within a site or domain:' field (which does the same thing as site:www.bushcraft (http://www.bushcraft)...).

Of course searching for 'can' isn't going to be very productive, probably over half the threads on the site have the word 'can' in them.
