    You might have to elaborate, a quick test and it did work fine.

    The tech team has identified the problem and the fix should be implemented later today. I will get more information later in the day and keep you updated.

    Thanks!

    Which part. I just tested a search for the word "search" in advanced search within this subforum and it worked just dandy. Unlike yesterday which pulled up every subforum.

    [edit=never mind indexing still isn't working properly]
    Indexing is still slow? I just posted in a thread in foo about drugs and guns in canada. The search did not find this post.

    Okay,
    I've reported this to tech. Was the problem that search returned no results or didn't return the most recent results?

    Thanks.

    Most recent. It did return results but not from today. (I didn't thoroughly investigate dates to find out the cutoff, but it didn't find my post from a couple of hours ago)

    Also, when I tried earlier, I got 878 pages of posts for myself, but when I went to see the last page, it returned the same results as page one.

    So, page 878 = page 1

    tried searching for threads about Andy Hampsten and no threads were returned.
    that's peculiar b/c there has to be a bunch of threads mentioning that rider, right?

    I just tried it and several pages came up. I also tried limiting it to one single sub-forum and it still worked.

    I will try to find out how often the site indexes of if it is done per post. I will let you guys know

    i use search to see if people have replied to my posts, sorting results by date, and showing results as posts.

    this hasn't updated for days.

    to IB, this appears to be the last post indexed which happened several days ago. Seaching by Botto, with 1 week, sort by date and show by post in this forum only.

    Botto,

    I have re-emailed IB and essentially sent them this post as reference. There is definitely something still wonky with indexing or at the very least the search engine.

    Search not only doesn't index, it doesn't list posts in chrono order.

    It populates most recent posts from last page to previous one (reverse order), then remaining lists from recent (Page 1) and on (correct order).

    For example:

    Username=stevesurf

    Search Options/
    Search Duration=Forever
    Sort Results By=Post Date

    Every page shows posts in chrono order except next to last page and last page that include the most recent posts. Next to last page has posts from 2005 and 2008 on it.

    They have been re-made aware. The existing ticket was still open and they are still trying to retool it.
