hey guys i am currently updating the forum. this update SHOULD allow you to search all the way back to the beginning of the board. we had that problem where it would only search through the posts made since the new board. this SHOULD fix it. i don't know how long it is going to take, a fair while i am betting. during this time you may experience some problems with the search function, i am not sure. i will keep you all posted on how things are going, hopefully this will fix that problem, it would be sweet to be able to search back to the beginning, there are alot of posts that weren't being searched.

100% done

i did a search and found a post all the way back from april 15 2002. so it goes all the way back to the beginning. this should help out alot with searches since it will now cover all of the posts from the very beginning.

Sweet...what does this mean for the board? Just the searching option?

I've been wondering since you updated the look of the board, it has been really slow. Any word on why?

btw nice Sig with my IP and whatnot. :wink:

ya, the search for the message board is fixed and now works properly. it was only searching posts from when we switched to phpBB. but it now searches all of the posts like it is supposed to. this increased the size of the database to 50mb. basically, 50mb of pure text, no images, nothing....it takes ALOT to even make a 100k text file. this is part of the reason the site is slow, when it does the queries to the database, it's working with a HUGE database. the only way to help fix it would be to delete posts, but i don't want to do that because this is kind of like a knowledge base on escorts, and it would kind of defeat the purpose of it if i delete the older posts. i am however thinking of going through and pruning the forum which would delete all old posts that never got a reply. still thinking about it. but for now, the search works which is what i've been trying to fix.
