search system update

#1 Post by Plexus » Mon Jun 01, 2009 9:14 pm

Our search is still having some major issues. The problem has been identified and the provider of our forum software has issued an update to solve this. We will be upgrading as soon as a release candidate is made available for our architecture and systems. Once the upgrade is completed, the search will then include data from the period nov 2005 - april 2009. Currently data from this time period is there, just we cant "index" it for searches so it doesnt show up in your browser when searching.

Updates will follow when available.

Thanks

search is now restored. theres a small gap in the search index of about a day around the 30th aug this year, other than that its there going back to when all this were nowt but fields.

i installed the quickreply mod but it looks gash so im going to have to redesign it a bit before it goes live.

could the search system be modified so that is allows small words to be searched for?

For instance if I want to search for threads that mention wii I can't.

Ta muchly. :)

interestingly (or not) I searched for "Burning Man" (without quotes) and it said man was too short so ignored.

I tried "Burning +man" (without quotes) and same result. Fortunately my brain then remembered the original poster and I found the post that way.

you can get around it by using google to search the site, but it would be nicer to be able to use the site search.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q= ... ing+man%22

for example
