Default Searching for a 3 letter word

Let's say I want to search for posts containing "ABC"
I try putting it in an advanced search...
It says it's too short and I get no results (That's what she said.)
I've tried * and " before, after and on both sides of the ABC but it didn't produce results

Is there a way to do this?

Abc* should get the result you want.

For example, searching ‘say*’, without the quotes, gives results for titles with says, saying etc.

I’m not sure if maybe it doesn’t work with certain words.

I think that works to return results that contain the 3 letters plus some other letters, but not if you want just that 3-letter word with spaces on either side.

For example, in your link, there is a thread named Sayanara, Old Man Winter! It contains "say" followed by another letter. However, if you search for old*, that thread doesn't show up in the results, but threads containing words like "older", "oldest", Olds", etc. do show up.

If it's a rare enough word, using google limiting it to this site only may avail you.

IE: <insert three letter word here> site:forum.calgarypuck.com

Probably won't help if it's a more common word though
