Search feature broken?

Wed Jan 08, 2020 11:06 pm

Is the Search feature on this site semi-broken? It doesn't seem to find all the search results.

For example in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1438597
I clicked in the "Search this topic" textbox and typed "granular" (without the quotes).
It found 2 results: search.php?keywords=granular&t=1438597&sf=msgonly
(Actually, I tried again, and now it found only 1 result.)
But it didn't find my own posts with "granular", such as
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1438597&start=300#p21913301

Another problem is that when I go to search.php and do a search myself as Author, I don't see all my posts. It's only showing 1 post for myself in 2020, but I've posted at least 5 posts in 2020.

The Search feature used to work perfectly. Thank you for looking into this.

The search feature has been a problem since I've been here, over 15 years now.

It's occasionally an issue. Hopefully the developers will look into it or at least provide a better explanation than I can. From what I've noticed, it sometimes seems to take about 24 hours to update.

yup, the "search" field up top is probably sarcasm....

Usually google with site:airliners.net works fine, but of course not nearly real time as the websites own could...
