    It takes a while for everything to be re-indexed. As soon as that is done, it will be back.

    I miss it too :)

    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.

    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...

    thanks

    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. :(
