This is a problem with Discourse, probably not fixable for us…

I’ve updated those settings, I think. Let me know how it performs.

It works.

google can search 1 symbol. Is it more costly or not really to reduce it to 1 ?

You specifically requested lengths of 2…

so why suddenly changing your mind after the fix has already been put in place?

We’ll try it at 1 and see.

1 is fine for CJK, but can get pretty costly for latin languages. We’ll see how it does, it seem ok’ish with a few quick tests though for the time being.
