It seems to be working fine for me.

What are you trying to search?

Try searching for "blitz" by post (not thread). It comes up with some posts that contain "blitz," but it also comes up with some posts in which there is no instance of "blitz" on the entire page.

the phpbb search has never been very good. I would go to google, and search for:

Code:
site:castleparadox.com blitz

I have a script that iterates over every single post and recreates the search database. It takes quite a bit of time, and I don't remember if I need to clear the old search database before running it. It is currently running without clearing anything. If that doesn't fix it, I'll clear the database and rerun.

For me this is still broken. I randomly searched for "Endless Evil" and found thread that neither contained Endless nor Evil.

Also the game search could need some more options. :x


Also I'd wish you'd save the search results for longer than a second. Like when I search a list of threads / games, I'd like to be able to select them and then go back to the search results again, but it always tells me that the search timed out even if it was only 1 minute ago.

It's working now. I think I remember IM repairing the database for an unrelated reason a couple of days ago?
