Search Function

Unread postby a dad » Sun Dec 11, 2016 1:34 pm

The forum underwent some changes yesterday which were originally due to the hosting company. Credit goes to tech_admin for diligently working towards a resolution.

In the aftermath, I set the search functions common word threshold higher so the search results may be better for us.

Feel free to take a look and let us know how it's working.

It's about time!! Thank you.

Tom

Edit: Actually, with the exception of posts I've made today, the search feature doesn't seem to work at all.

Thanks Tom.

Apparently the search index is still rebuilding after I changed the settings.

Due to the size of the forum, we may need to give it some time.

"Successfully indexed all posts in the board database."

We have now changed the search function. If we find any problems, we can now adjust the "common words" issue we've had in the past.
