    Default Searches in new Forum not working

    The searches in the new forum don;t seem to work
    If you go search and enter some keywords, (one you know are there) - no match is found

    It looks like searches only work on new posts. A bit of a bummer actually

    As the new data is imported, it takes time before it is all indexed. It will work. :)

    I moved this to the Forum Support forum.

    Default Search this forum broken?

    Tried to search the A5v4 forum for

    report

    and the search engine couldn't find any threads, even though I can see several instances myself by glancing through a few likely topics.

    Feels like the search engine (for a single forum) is not working.

    I am still in the midst of importing data. When it is all done (probably by tomorrow morning), I will update the indexes and searches will work across the board. Currently, they only work on A5v7 and A5v6.

    Aaron,

    Aside from the process of importing from the old forums, there seem to be problems with the search even when it comes to the latest postings.

    In a thread titled Append Problem on the V6 forum, was a posting made today which included the word "corrupt". Upon doing a search for that word only one find came up and it was not the posting above. So this brings the question of whether there is a time delay in getting the postings indexed for searching.

    I was just curious as to whether this was a result of getting all threads (past and present) updated or if another problem was present.

    Steve,

    I am currently reindexing the posts as we speak. This involves clearing all the indexes first.

    There should be no time delay in the future.
