    "Search" Issues

    Can't find some old threads that I know exist. Also can't seem to get any Search results older than 2007.

    Re: "Search" Issues

    The search only returns the first 1500 word matches in the history, so if you search something vague (like "Disney" or "Disneyland") you hit your limit real fast. Also, to search for older threads, change "Find Posts from" to "A Year Ago and Older".

    Re: "Search" Issues

    I still think there's something up.

    Search the entire board for "Club 33" and I only get 124 hits, all in 2007.

    Search the entire board on "saucers" and only get a handful of hits, again all in 2007.

    If I select "a year ago and older"...I get nothing!

    I know we've discussed the Flying Saucers many times in the past.

    Now...Search on "Mansion" a year ago or older, and still:

    Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.
    Suggest you try to see if you can get any hits on any keyword and search setting, to come up in 2006 or earlier. Nothing in the Search index except 2007 as far as I can see.

    I've messed with the search indexes and deltas. Attempt your search now.

    Yep. Working now. Thanks!

    But I am getting a strange screen before the Search results are displayed. Here's a screenshot example:



    That appears for only a few seconds, and then the normal Search Results Page is displayed as expected. Might be a bug of some kind.

    Also, FYI...the last few hours I've been getting this message on-and-off even when trying to access forums:

    Currently, MiceChat is experiencing an abnormal amount of server-intensive requests (such as searches). Your request could not be processed at this time. Please try again in a few minutes.

    I got that same thing, too when I just searched for something.
