Blocking Certain Characters
#1

I am wondering how to prevent people from searching using certain/special characters. For example, I don't want people to be able to search for private messages containing the following characters: < > / '

When a person attempts how to search using these characters it would just say something along the lines of "Invalid characters used in search".

I'm doing this because people can create a mysql error by searching private messages using certain 'phrases'.

Seems to cause the error on all mybb powered forums.

Would I be able to do this by just making a few changes to the private.php/search.php file?
