I have passed both sets of search issues uphill to IB. both the subforum search issue and the indexing problem
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.
Search should be back up and working! Thanks for your reporting and your patience!
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.
I've reported this to tech. Was the problem that search returned no results or didn't return the most recent results?
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
TRY EMPATHY & HAVE LOVE IN YOUR HEART, PERHAPS I'LL SEE YOU ON THE ROAD...
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 will try to find out how often the site indexes of if it is done per post. I will let you guys know
Gotta be pretty quick and working, 15minutes later and the word indexing is already in place
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.
It populates most recent posts from last page to previous one (reverse order), then remaining lists from recent (Page 1) and on (correct order).
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.
This should be fixed now. Anyone still having problems?
Search is down for me (Wednesday 10:40 PM CDT). No results returned.
