    I can search anything in the database and know for a fact I have many posts named welcome... or burried in posts I have the word 'welcome'.

    When I search for the word 'welcome' not results are returned??

    That is because "welcome" is one of the words in the mySQL stop words list.

    You'll need to turn on boolean mode if you need users to search for words in this stop words list.

    Thanks Ajay. I probably should have known that, sorry for the time waster

    No issues. This is one of the drawbacks of relevant search. I'm going make modifications in a future version of the plugin that will revert to another search algorithm for such stop words.
