hi, I'm having a problem searching the '@' character in the forum search screen. Does anyone knows why I can't search on "@" character? Any thought is appreciated.

To support searches, jForum parses each new post to create a list of words in the post. These are checked against the words currently in a "word list", with new words being added. It then updates a word to post table with information about the new posts.

I suspect the problem is that the word parsing considers "@" to be a noise or separator character. So there are no words that match in the word list table when you use an @ character.

Also, the current implementation of search in JForum is not that good. For JForum 3 we are going to use Lucene.
