In progress Search Engine

my forum search seems to work correctly up to topics . when we search something in the replies section it doesn't appear or only the topic appears.

when in a topic you have 1000 replies this can be frustrating

It only searches for keywords in topic titles.  Also it will not show any results for a word that is less than four letters long.

 if it cannot be solved , is there an easy way to make all the replies different topics ? and maybe make what were my previous topics new categories ? Sad

Could you post a link to a topic on your forum that shows a search box on it?
