Search in here is not good

Place to discuss anything, almost. No politics, religion, Microsoft, or anything else that I (the nazi censor) deem inappropriate.

Search in here is not good

Post by Basher52 » Thu Apr 07, 2011 2:53 pm

Did you make any changes to the search in the old forum?
'cos this version of the search ain't good :(
I've tried to search for my own posts but can't find them.
I used to do that since I use this place as a "dictionary" of stuff I need to look up again... due to bad memory :P

I just clicked on your username and clicked "search user's posts" and it showed all 740 of them. You don't get that? If not, here's the search it ran:

...and when trying again(my nick and 'sendmail'), I just get my previous reply(in this post)
Seems to me like the search don't go through old posts, or like an index has been "nullified" when you upgraded, if you get my point.

(like in here: http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/forums/vi ... f=6&t=2051 )

I switched it from phpBB internal searching to mysql searching in the config. Not sure why the internal phpBB searching does not work but it sounds like if you are running on mysql it's just better in general to use the mysql based searching.
