How To Search For 3 Letter Word?

I want to search for all the ham cooks people have posted. Unfortunately, "ham" is a 3 letter word and the search engine won't allow it. I've tried the various wild cards I know of, didn't help.

    upper right window which says "site search". type in 'ham'.

    works for me

    if you have the google tool bar, you can type in the word "ham", and instead of clicking the regular google search, you can restrict the search to this site only

    here>> Google Site-Search for "Ham"

    Thanks for the tips. Searching for ham brings up results from the forums.

    You're right, we've configured the search index to skip three letter words to save space and time on the server, but there are a few important three letter words aren't there? :-).

    We'll have to look into whether there's a way to configure the index to recognize certain three letter words w/out having to include words like "the" too.

    Meanwhile, the suggestions elsewhere in this thread might be a good work-around; and, we'll also look into a Google search link for a site restricted search also to make "going Google" easier.
