    The only way I've found is to go into "archive" and do a find on this page search. Pain in the butt.

    I don't know if they changed something or not but I did something different today. If you (from the Forum page) click on a section like "General" and enter it, then scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see "Thread Display Options". Change this to "show threads from the " and pick "beginning". Now I can see and search older threads I think.

    Edit: Can see them but can't search them.

    In order to get the search to function for older posts we will have to re-index all the old posts. We did re-index about 13,000 of the latest posts after the forum was upgraded and that process took about 3 hours.. There are 127,000 posts on the forum and to re-index them all we would have to take the forum down for about 2 days to get them all or we can batch them at night and take the board down from 8 or 9pm and then restart it the next morning for about a week.

    I don't think the masses could survive the forum being down for 2 days!

    Can you re-index certain sections such as Modifications and skip others such as Off Topic?

    Modifications would be the big one nice to have searchable. Then Service and Repair. These are also some of the least posted in threads (compared to General Chat).

    Unfortunately, you can't pick n choose when doing the re-indexing.. I think we're just going to have to come to a consensus on the plan of action:

    A. Take it down and re-index everything as quickly as possible, probably a couple of days
    B. Take it down at night and let it do its thing and hopefully get it in 4 days or so
    C. Leave it as is, which doesn't seem like the best idea since there is lots of good info in there, people just have to dig through archives

    I vote take it down for 2 days and we are done. To do it at night, I think alot of members check it then so more of an inconvenience. I think down for tuesday wednesday and thursday morning if necessary would be best. but just my opinion.
