    I ran a search for the word "next" in an effort to find something someone had posted, yet i was told the word "nect" wasnt in the thread at all. So i made a post with the word "next" in it then searched again-still told that the word isnt in the thread.

    Whats up with that?

    Searches have to be for words that are at least five letters long.

    There are also stop words that are automatically excluded from search because of being so common. That is most likely one of them.
