    First, make sue this is set to 'Yes' for all forums:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Index New Posts in Search Engine -> Yes

    Then rebuild the search index:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Search Index

    If you still have this problem after that then a modification you installed is causing this.

    Your forum is currently using the vBulletin search engine. < Empty postindex and word tables? If yes, only when the forum is closed? Or what should I do to improve search results?

    All non private sections have new posts indexed in forum manager.

    vBulletin has types of search engines. A built-in index and MySQL's fulltext. What Steve is asking is which Search Type are you using? You can see this in your Admin CP under vBulletin Options -> Search Type.

    Most likely cause though for posts/threads that don't show up in the search results is that they are in forums that are set to be ignored by search indexing. You can check this in the Forum Manager by editing the forum in question and checking its options.

    Which search type are you using - Fulltext or the default vB search?

    any search

    sometimes the search is useful, but overall seems really week NOW (i had the forum for 3 years). for a while it worked perfectly.

    Search not really working

    Hey

    I have a topic called "Aliens are my brother".

    But when I search for "aliens" (navbar or advanced search < even 'titles only') I get 0 results!

    I found more examples and no explanation.

    :/
