We are in the process of upgrading search functionality. All search options will be upgraded this week. This process will get everything setup on the newest version of our search tool and start using new capabilities that are available. The most notable upgrade will be that there will now be zero lag between an item being created and it being searchable.
If you see any issues with search, rest assured they will stabilize over the next few days.
Search on our forums is still broken, results given are either 'none' or just a few random threads. I can manually pick 5 threads with the keyword I'm searching for and have them open. After this I'll go to the forums front page on our site, click 'Search', type in the keyword with the options:
Forum: All available
Search previous: All Posts
Category: All Available
Sort by: Post Time
Display results as: Posts x Topics (this makes no difference)
Return  first characters of posts
This search returns exactly 1 result instead of the 5 results I have manually opened in threads we've previously generated. I have "Site Admin" for the site and I can moderate all forums where I'm trying to search for the posts.
The info post at http://community.guildlaunch.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10013244&gid=535 stated that search should be done. How long until the search works on our forums?
What terms are you searching for, and what threads do you have open with those terms confirmed in those threads? I'll look into it!
I'm searching for my own username (Arakki), the threads are located in the hierarchy as follows:
1 Thread which is viewable by anyone (including non-registered guests) in our Public forum portion of the site.
2 and 3 in a thread which is viewable by anyone registered and with an approved application, e.g. "Guild member" rank.
4 and 5 in the officer-forum which has limited access to a user group.
The posts are both old and newly created or edited. I will PM you the list or URL's.
NOTE: While I'm typing this, I did a new search with the same keyword (Arakki) and I'm now getting 10 results total. This is still lacking in total.
