Dear fellow Chiffers

For some while now - maybe since the upgrade of the Board software earlier this year, but, on the other hand, maybe not, we've been having some issues with the Search function on the Board. Several members have now flagged this up, so I plan to do something about it.

This is a heads up - I'm about to try to recreate the Search function from scratch. There's no need for anyone to avoid the Board or anything like that - I don't need you all to get off the Board while I work. But, and it may be a big 'but', the Search function will cease to work altogether for a period of time while I try to rebuild it.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Done. :D And it's only taken me all day. :)

Please let me know what experience you now have with the Search function.

Seems to be all fixed. I entered keywords "reed", "goo", "turbid", "sling" and "tripe", and got hit numbers I would normally expect, "reed" being in the thousands and "turbid" being like thirteen or something. Looks like we stopped using that word around 2005.

Well done, Ben. :thumbsup:

Here we go again chaps. I am going to try to re-set the search function again. While I do that, please would you be patient and not try to use the search function? I know other folks have re-indexed databases before, but this is a really big database. Last time I re-set it, it took 12 hours. Any searches made during that time WILL slow the process further, so please don't until tomorrow.

You can carry on using any other Board functionality as normal. It is possible, however, that normal functions may appear slower than usual for a time.

Here we go ...

Thanks for your hard work.

Thanks, Ben. I had discovered the problem when I was searching for one of my old posts about cork position, to aid someone over on the orange board.
