    Like khayman said... you need to be more specific - so we can sort the problem ... if there is one

    ok.. sorry i wasn't more specific....

    i tried 3 different times to search for the terms "edit track info windows media player 8" and it keeps taking me to the screen saying:

    vBulletin Message
    The search term you specified (8) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.
    If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.

    And it won't let me get any further..... on reflection i tried a different search with fewer terms and they seemed to work... however... i am wondering if perhaps i kept getting this screen because either.. (a) there were too many terms... or (b) there was no results (at the time) and it merely didn't say that......... but then again i'm prolly totally off or using it wrong or something... so thats about as specific as i can get... its prolly just me... thanks again for the site.

    the word you search for has to be at least 3 letters long there fore the word 8 is only 1 letter long :)

    so you can't search for the version number of a product then? thats a bit odd........... without typing the number as a word... or adding decimals and zeros etc... prolly wouldn't get picked up on cause other people wouldn't write that either..... i dunno just ignore me :)
