  • TOL Search Index Issue

    @Knight

    I noted from the chat box that Knight was rebuilding the search index after updating the site. Is this complete? I cannot search and find posts I know to exist. It seems a lot of data is missing from the index.

    Try this simple link purporting to show TH's forum posts:
    http://theologyonline.com/search.php?searchid=654244

    A few from recent days then suddenly a leap backwards to 2008.

    Same here. I always went to the "New Posts" shown in the header at the top of the page. My new posts don't show up and once I look at a post the thread goes away too. My new posts show up only in Activity Stream. All of my Threads Started are gone too, all but a few.

      See, I just posted and it's not listed under "New Posts" and once you view this thread once, it disappears from "New Posts"

        Yes, I see the same issue with my own posts.

          Freelight and I noticed this too.

          Also, the threads displaying in Settings go back many weeks since the latest post, which is odd. Usually Settings only displays threads that have recent activity, like in the past day or even just the past number of hours. This is new since the software was changed.

          Anybody else notice this?

            I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

            "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

            I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
            A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
            If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

            Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

            I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

              I just did an Advanced search and it worked just fine.

              As far as the New Posts list is concerned read this.

                  Too bad they all aren't like me, Knight. I never know where I am, anyway.

                    Others besides me may have lost their threads, I only have about 5 recent threads left, no older ones.

                      It is not threads particularly but the search function that is apparently skipping years of posts.

                      For example, this 2015 post obviously exists:
                      http://www.theologyonline.com/forums...78#post4508178

                      Now proceed to run Advanced Search, Single Content Type, with keyword eschatological and username Ask Mr. Religion

                      I get two results from 2007. Sigh.

                      Or, if I just select View Latest Posts from my profile I see some recent ones, then jumps to a couple of years, then back to 2008, despite having plenty of near term posts that would have filled up the max of 100 that are displayed using this option.

                      Something is hosed up with the index being searched.

                      The above simple example still fails to be properly found via the search function.

                      I am not making this up:
