New Search implemented, old removed

I have completely implemented the new Frihost Search and replaced the links to point to the new search.

The old search won't work anymore since I emptied the search tables in the database that were needed for the old search. They are useless now. Very Happy

I also disabled the updating of the search tables (again the purpose of the new search was to do this). This causes posting to be faster. Faster might not be a good term, since from my own tests, it's over 50 times faster. I tested it with a somewhat larger post (but not really huge). It took a bit more than 7 seconds to post with the updating of the search tables still enabled. Once I removed them, it only took 0.12 seconds, which is over 50 times faster.

The new search itself is also faster as the previous search sometimes took over half a minute or even timed out.

Enjoy posting ... faster. Very Happy

Nice Bondings. Can't wait to see the difference!

I have also added the option to sort by relevance to the search query instead of sorting by date (which is the default).

That's really cool Bondings, I love the new search, a lot more like Google than the old one.

One thing though I've noticed for a while is the the top navigation bar (containg searches, blog links and profile info) has a little bit of text overflow over the bottom border in Safari 4 and Firefox 3.

I'm not sure if its a mac specific problem, and I've seen it so often I hardly notice it, but just though you might want to know Smile.

Awww ...

I miss the old search

Is there any way to search for topics where u have posted, and see which of them have unread replies ?

In the old search, I used to search for the "author name" as "funda", leaving the keywords blank.

This would get me the posts I have replied to, with all the newest threads I participated in which have new replies showing the unread messages symbol.

Is there a way to do this now ?

I don't want email alerts or watch threads to be set, because I hate it when I get notification emails.

@Funda, it's the link on top of the forums to the right. I think it does something similar to what you need.
Bondings on Wed Apr 15, 2009 11:57 am
The difference is really noticeable. Nice one!

Thanks Bondings. Nice name - Ego Search Laughing

Will the links of the forum page: "View posts since last visit", "View your posts", "View unanswered posts" still work? As far as I remember they use the built in search to work...
LukeakaDanish on Mon Apr 20, 2009 5:19 pm
@LukeakaDanish, they still seem to work. I already emptied the search tables and everything. Those links don't rely on the search tables in the database.
Bondings on Mon Apr 20, 2009 5:29 pm
Works fine for me, thx
Carola_Game on Mon May 11, 2009 6:58 pm

Im interested in seeing the work of toehrs as inspiration , so this place seems like a great place for us to show our talents. I'm currently experimenting with my own videos of games etc.

Badmaster on Wed Aug 19, 2009 11:54 am
I say congratulations because Frihost have increased the speed to posting, so I can more quickly send the post. Hopefully I also get a larger point, and I immediately get immediate approval to have free hosting on Frihost .... Laughing Laughing Laughing
edywidarto on Sat Aug 22, 2009 3:46 pm
I get the same error as Badmaster. Sad

adri on Sat Aug 22, 2009 9:00 pm
I also get the same error as badmaster, is there anything wrong with it? or will I just not be able to search...
