Can you change the way search works to allow 724

Hello,

I wanted to search for Toro 724

So I went to the Toro section and tried to search for "724"

However the search says that "724" is too short or too common and was ignored.

I understand that searching for "I" or "we" or "had" is a crazy thing to do and that's why short words are ignored...but..... searching for NUMBERS really ought to be allowed so we can home in on particular models.

I'm left with manually looking at every thread because I cannot get the search to work for "724"

Is that something you can change easily?

I hope this is the right place to post this.
Thanks

what is funny is how close you came in your post to answering your question.
Use the quotes in the search
724 -doesn't work
"724" does work
search of toro forum using "724"

Another trick I like to use is use your favorite search engine, I use google, and type something like "toro 724 site:snowblowerforum.com/forum" without the quotes or if you wanted to search the subforum of toro it would be "724 site:www.snowblowerforum.com/forum/toro-snowblowers" again without the quotes.

Wow that *IS* useful. Much better than the inbuilt search mechanisms that come bundled with the forum tools. However... it feels a bit Orwellian the way that Google knows more about me than I've forgotten.

Hi back to you from South Denver (Tech Center)!
