    Is there any way to turn off the limitations in forum search? It won't search on very common, short terms, like 'EP1' or '9-18'

    I wanted to see if there were any Oly 9-18 lenses for sale. Some people might call it Olympus 9-18, others Oly 9-18. The term "9-18" won't search, as the engine returns it as too short. It says "The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search:"

    Is there anyway to permit searching on such short terms?

    I do as Nic said. Unfortunately the forum software doesn't allow us to change the search limitations.
