Why am I told I cannot use the "Search" function? 
I tried to search for the answer, but well...you can figure it out  ;)

It was using too many resources or something like that :)

I am working on setting things up to re-enable it. Suffice, though, enabling it again the normal way would take a week just to build the index...

...so yeah, normal search methods = no show.

Does not mean they're gone, just, SMF's search is completely inadequate for a forum this size.

I'm currently composing a very sad song to express my pining sadness for the search function.

It's heartbreaking. >.>

Will getting our own server help with this?  I don't get all the technical difficulties on the site, but I finally had need of using 'search' and couldn't.  Feels sort of like a waste of our Siren's time to answer simple questions like "What's a NING..."  when I could have searched for it.  As it was, Valerian kindly pointed me to a post I would probably have never noticed casually.

No, just send Dawg out

This is near the end of the conversation:

Back on topic, I think it would since there is not the chance of other sites hogging resources and then Vekseid can implement the search function he would want to use.  But only Vekseid can answer for sure.

Not significantly. Mostly, it's a matter of needing to upgrade the forum, handling everything that breaks (such as the Shoutbox, arcade, etc) and wanting to deal with that just once, if possible. RC1 is supposed to be out 'any week now' and getting Search going would basically happen over the next day.

I'm impatient too, but I'm less patient about doing everything twice in near immediate succession : /

Feel free to haunt the SMF forum site and nail me the moment the next beta or RC1 comes out though : )

The search engine now works, I'm assuming due to the new server, but whatever, IT'S AWESOME!!

Thanks so much!

Yes, search is working : )

I'm still looking into tweaking it. Some points to keep in mind, however:

1: New posts are only indexed every ten minutes.
2: Edits to posts made before the last backup are only reindexed after the next backup runs. So if you make a post today, and edit it, the edit should show up fine after the next ten minute run, but if you edit it tomorrow you won't see it until the next day.
3: If there's REALLY a desire for more than a thousand results... let me know?
