"Search" not working?

Post by Binford » Wed Feb 03, 2010 4:56 am

I just tried searching for something but it seems it is only searching posts that were made today. I searched "legacy" and it only returned (1) result! "Subaru" came back with none! I've used the search numerous times so needless to say I'm a little confused!

Not working for me either. Only posts from today seem to be coming up.

I'm guessing the db is borked. I'm fairly certain that the admin panel has option to rebuild the db, but it's been forevers since I admin'ed a phpBB.

Same here! Just checking to make sure it wasn't just me.

I know it worked 2 days ago, as I just did a search in the suspension forum.

Only showing posts from today for me as well, this is the third computer I've tried. I've tried searching logged in and logged out, but same thing. This sucks cause i'm trying to help a guy out but can't search anything without going through all the old posts. I noticed this last night when I did a search but just shrugged it off because it was late and I was tired. Could just be my imagination or my cpu, but it seems a lil slower loading pages too.

PLEASE fix this or tell me what i'm doing wrong.

Thanks, Brian

Can someone give me an example of this not working?

I tried "clutch" and "pressure" and it brought up results for both of them with ten pages to look through.

Oh, you are using the built-in search?

For some reason that index seems to have reset on the 2nd.

I'll look in to it, but you can use the Google search in the top right corner in the meantime. It does a pretty good job.

Thanks for the quick reply. All I ever use is the built-in search. Never even crossed my mind to use the other one.

Thanks, Brian

I haven't been able to find something as simple and elegant as the default style we use here.

That might be secondary to needing to simply move on to the latest stuff and settling for something that will do until we find something better.

The built in search is very...broad. It brings up results that has what you searching in someone's signature. I did a search on coil packs and got a thread with someone's signature was the only place that mentioned coil packs....lol.

Fix it please!!! I have lots of searching and reading to do! :)

The only way to fix the search is to rebuild the index. It will take quite a bit of time to rebuild the index, and the board will be down.

I'll talk with Dave and see if it's something we want to do, or if we're going to be upgrading to the new version some time soon.

Thanks for understanding guys.

Google search index to the rescue!

In the google search field, type in: site:bbs.legacycentral.org <query you want>

i.e. site:bbs.legacycentral.org td04

How is that different from the google search field at the top right of the forum?

Not really, but not every skin has that Google search box to use.
