Anyone else having trouble with the search option?

Every time I try and search for something I get the maintenance page...Can't even search to see if this problem has been reported!!..

Just wondering if it's just me? using Windows10, MS Edge.

I got the error message yesterday when I searched for a user's posts. I had to include a search term for the search to work.

I had similar issues, also some page loading very slow, like there is an indexing or a cache problem somewhere?

So it appears to be an issue with people using later versions of Chrome for posting in a thread.

This then breaks search for everyone.


Need to upgrade to a fixed version of the forum software. We'll put this into a test environment first and keep everyone updated.

For others information someone on here mentioned that you can use Google to search only UKVAC. 

eg. to search for 'Arcade' type:

site:www.UKVAC.COM Arcade

in Google Search.

Is this ever going to be fixed?  I'm aware that the site is free but still, it's been a year and the search is still totally broken.   Even basic things like viewing a users profile and clicking "Find members posts" is non-functional.   Google site: search is erratic at finding matches.  Last week I was able to use it to find a thread, today I'm having no luck.

Given the influx of new members, might it be a good idea to get the Search function working please? This has been an ongoing problem for over a year now. Smile

Thanks!

I know Alpha and the boys are onto this...
They are moving the site over to new forum software and it will be fixed
(There is a site maintenance topic about this)
They are asking for any donations to try and make this happen quick/soon
If we all chipped in a wee bit for this great site (Which for most is now your only home) then it will be better for all of us

Hi guys,  OK we've implemented a fix that hopefully will allow searches to work properly again.  We'll monitor the site to make sure it doesn't introduce any other new issues.
