    The search facility doesnt allow for searches of two character strings meaning Z1 and Z2 posts are hard to find.

    There is also a swear word filter that replaces offending words with *****.

    I dont suppose there is anyway to detect the Z2 as a swearword:eek: and replace it with something like PLVZ2.

    And in retrospect do a search and replace of all Z2 references, changing to PLVZ2.

    That way the Z2 threads can be easily identified and anyone who persists in using Z2 will have it auto changed.

    As an interim measure what about putting asticky up asking Z1 and Z2 references to be PLVZ1 or PLVZ2 so that they are searchable, or make it more generic and inform people that any reference to hardware with just 2 characters will mean it cant be searched
