    Does vBulletin have the ability to search for a string? For example, I would like to be able to search for "p bass" or "SX SPB-57 TM", but they are invalid searches (since 'p', 'SX', and 'TM' are less than 3 characters.) If there is a way to do a string search, I would like to know.

    Sorry, currently there is no such search feature. There is supposedly a 'hack' in production that will take advantage of mysql4's full-text search features, making it possible to search for words of any length. But for now we've gotta put up with the 3 character min.
