Minor Request Change for Auction Searches (in General)


Zenai October 11 2012 6:03 PM EDT

Ya know just recently I have been talking with a few newer members of the CB community concerning all kinds of things. One that I have found to be reoccurring is the way the Auction search engine will only take fully spelled out items.........yet we speak in almost all acronyms on a daily basis.

Is there any way that the search engine could be set up to take the acronyms as well?

it should work, I think the data only goes back so far, possibly there are not any sales for that item in the database.

Well if it does that then it should be a breeze to set it up to use Acronyms :-)

I has never worked for that item for me I've tried it many times, over the last year

I just tried, it works.

Glad to hear it is partially working but still not the point of the thread to begin with folks. It works one way, I am asking if it can be set up to work in another.
