How To Index One-Character Words

I just started using phpDig last night. Looks like I've finally found a decent website search engine that I can live with!

I'm wondering though how I can set it up so that even single character words are indexed. I found the following statement in the config.php file, which I think would govern that.
When I set that number to zero, it sure didn't like that. Is there any way to disable the small words exclusion? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi. Not tested, but perhaps try the following.

Comment out the following line in the phpdigEpureText function located in the phpdig_functions.php file:
PHP Code:
$text ereg_replace('[[:blank:]][^ ]{1,'.$min_word_length.'}[[:blank:]]',' ',' '.$text.' '); 
Also comment out the following chunk of code in the search_function.php file:
PHP Code:
while (ereg(' ([^ ]{1,'.SMALL_WORDS_SIZE.'}) | ([^ ]{1,'.SMALL_WORDS_SIZE.'})$|^([^ ]{1,'.SMALL_WORDS_SIZE.'}) ',$test_short,$regs)) {
     for (
$n=1$n <=3$n++) {
        if (
$regs[$n]) {
$ignore .= "\"".$regs[$n]."\", ";
$test_short trim(str_replace($regs[$n],"",$test_short));

Then set define('SMALL_WORDS_SIZE',2); to define('SMALL_WORDS_SIZE',0); in the config file.
