Search Issues

Postby erikr » Sun Feb 24, 2019 10:04 pm

Seems like in the last couple of weeks to a month that the search engine isn't translating the obfuscated header text so searching basically returns nothing from that time period. Anyone else seeing this issue?

Dex and I are working to try to address this. The posting groups completely changed how they post on Jan 1. We're hoping to have improvements in, in the next week or two.

Hi, just wanted to see if you had any updates on this issue? I realize it's only been about a week and a half, just thought that I would ask.

Thanks!

It's not a quick fix. Dex and I are in the midst of testing some of the search engine changes.

Thanks for the update, I understand that something like this isnt necessarily a simple fix, I was just wondering how things were progressing. Can you post something on the Message of the day when this is done?
