  • why doesnt the search option find post?

    We just finised updating, everything seems to be ok but the search option. I'll put something in to search for that is posted on our site to see if it will find it and it wont. Seems the older version did a better job at seaching, any idea why? anything I need to do?

    Thanks for any info!

    Did you reindex the search?

      opps no i didnt! I'm glad to hear that this may solve my problem! I was getting worried.

      do I need to take the board offline to do that or does it matter?

      Thanks very much!

        You don't have to, but it is a pretty damn intensive process. You may want to.

            I too love it. Cannot get over how it has everything I could possibly want. I dont own one yet, I just install them for my employer and am admin. But as soon as I get my own site, I will be purchasing my own license.
