"Search" Not Working!

Post by Glacier »

Not in all cases, but it seems that posts older than a certain date cannot be searched. eg. test...

I am having similar issues. When I try to search something, I either get results from 2020 or from 2010. There is no inbetween. For instance, if I search something like Dilworth, I'll see posts from 2010 but nothing since then. It's like that with almost anything I search. Is it an issue on my end?

Yup, only years ending of '0' get searched!

That is really strange. I just searched "pot" and got posts from 2006. I'll see what Troy has to say!

Weird... it seems like searches return 2020 and 2010 and before.

I've done a number of searches (using key words or person name) knowing there are threads out there, nothing shows up.

as example I did a advance search using the word earthquake under BC. 1 post showed up even though there is 6 or 7 pages in the thread BC Earthquakes.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

Any word on if the search feature will be fixed? I'm still getting results from 2020 or 2010 + previous years. Nothing is available between 2020 and 2010.

If Troy around tomorrow he will be right on it.
Thanks for reporting.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

I have the forums software currently rebuilding the search index. With almost 2.5 million posts on here, it’s going to take a while. I’ll post an update once it has finished.

The search function should now include all posts. The re-indexing process finished in the middle of the night.
