I ran into that same problum, and it was as if it only searched the current posts and not past posts?? Was going to give it a day or two and try again, glad I'm not the only one. :(

The search index needed to be rebuilt which is basically indexing every single word in every single post (230,000 of them), which is what was bringing the server down. I finished indexing the site today.

Enjoy,
Ron

It's finished? I just tried a search and it didn't work. It worked the other day so seems to be intermitent problems.

What are you searching on, what is it showing you? How are you searching?

Thanks,

I hit the search button on the top of every screen, it's a drop down box that I can type the info in and hit go, then it brings me to a search options page where you can change a bunch of settings. Sometimes it works but usually it takes me to that options page.

O.K. this is getting anoying, why would my search function work at my computer at work but not at home. I tried logging out, deleting cookies and it still just takes me to the setup screen instead of giving me results.

I can access the seacrh page.
It will give me a page with only this on it at every search :
"Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in /var/www/domains/sccoa.com/forums/search.php on line 946

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes) in Unknown on line 0"

The shortest word length to search is 3 and the longest is 20.

Most of the issues experienced with the search occur on browsers that are not up to date and with too high a level of security. Are you on a Mac or a PC? Does the search work for words between 3 and 20 characters in length?

ok seems fine now ... teh only thing is that if you use a 2 letter word in your search it will just give me an error ...
other then that everything is fine.

thx anyway.
