Problem with search function.

Post by Raptorman » Wed Dec 23, 2015 2:12 pm

Don't know if I am doing something wrong, but every time I try to search for something it comes up with this.

Searching functions on any message board can be pretty bad. As long as the pages are public(don't require a login) which nearly all pages here are, you can use google to search them.
From google or in your search bar in your browser that is set to search google, use the following
site:vikingsmessageboard.com somesearchterm

replace the somesearchterm with what you want to search for. I.E.

site:vikingsmessageboard.com Anthony Barr if you want to search for Anythony Barr(possibly bad example though as I'm sure there will be tons of results in that case)

It broke a while back, I think during the upgrade.

It's been broken for a while. I update it manually every now and again. I'll do that again soon and you'll be able to get newer results.

The search function should be working again.

It's still indexing so older posts (5+ years) aren't currently searchable but they will be within about 1-2 hours.
