"Try anyways" mode

This mode automatically performs a Google search if xenForo search system haven't found anything or failed.

For example, by default you can't search words that are shorter than 4 letters. In this case you will see the following error:
The search could not be completed because the search keywords were too short, too long, or too common

With "Try anyways" mode enabled you will see this:
