Anyone know when? Thanks
Hopefully soon...I never realized how much I used it. ;P
It takes a while for everything to be re-indexed. As soon as that is done, it will be back.
I miss it too
the search and new posts buttons are GREATLY missed....
It was back up for awhile, but then it went bye-bye again...
...I wish I was smart enough to help fix the problems around here.
heck, half the time I don't even realize there has been a problem.;P
I'd be interested to know what the problem is with search. Yrs. truly programs web applications for a living, and in my experience most search indexes are updated in near-realtime and rely on engines or functions that come with the database platform. I know GT gets a lot of use, but the overall volume of new posts doesn't seem excessive.
If it's a matter of database load... I guess I'd think about spinning off a separate database instance just to take the battering of search. Every couple minutes, select new/updated posts out of the main working db, toss into non-normalized search-only db, et voila, lots less contention. All you really need is subject, thread id, body abstract, url, modtime, author name.
I know I sure do miss the search tool... it makes it so much easier for a noobie like myself to get answers to what some may think trivial questions... hope it is up soon...
Not to mention the lost sales in the trading post forums. I can't even find some threads I purchased from to leave the sellers good feedback.
