I notice that any searches done now only return results posted after the server switch over. All the old posts are still there, but they do not appear as search results.

For example, searching for "oil" only produces 14 results. It should be closer to 14 million.

Is there anyway to get the old posts into the search results?

Thank God MilliniumRebel didn't last to see this!!!

There is, but not yet.

The data base has to be converted over to be compatible with the new software, I'm afraid. :( It's still there; we just can't use it yet.

Fair enough.

There is a work around, but is clunky.

Searching google with "site:rebel150.com" added will give you results, but it doesn't arganize them by thread (meaning you may have 5 results listed all of which are people quoting the the same thing. It is a jumbled mess. Better than nothing I suppose.

E.g. googling "oil site:rebel250.com" produce 971 results, which seems way to low. There are at least that many threads just about which oil to use. That's before you add in questions about oil leaking, oil filters, blown oil seals, etc.

Well, the search was missing some indexes... apparently hte indexer never finished its job during the conversion.

No worries, I wanted to switch to the faster indexing anyhow.

As for only 14 entries popping up when searching for 'oil' that's because it's finding posts themselves that contain oil... if you search for threads that contain oil, it turns up oner 3300...

So only 14 posts have the word oil, but thousands of thread do?
I would love to know how that works :P

But a search no produces nearly 10k, so things seem to back on track.
