    OSA search function

    Been going through my three external hard drives today trying to work out what I have shared on here, or not.

    The search function is dreadful. There are mixes that I know I have shared, but when I search for them they aren't found.

    Was going to spend a couple of hours adding so new shares, but no idea what I have or haven't

    Use google the best search engine in the world anything on here you have shared will show. only works if a forum is established and been around for a while.
    I can bring up any thread on this forum related to what your searching works with everything I have added

    PHPbb seems to have something built into it and does not work very well with google and vBulletin works better with google than phpbb but then vBulletin is 187.20, but then mybb works well with google and cost nothing. But mybb is not as good a script as phpbb and thats why I use phpbb.

    and vBulletin is a total rip of and gets to many bad reviews and their are cheaper scripts that are better than Vbulletin like xenforo what is only a $160.

    yeah I agree, I use google search all the time and then add 'oldskoolanthemz' to the end of the query

    threads that have been on the site for a while go into the archive which maybe excludes them from the on site search results

    when all the threads were deleted a few month ago they were still visible via google, but when you clicked on them they weren't (if that makes sense!)

    Didn't a load of threads disappear a few years back when the server crashed? I think some hadn't been backed up.

    Yes it's crashed I think it got hacked and he had no backups, I noticed it when I had not been a member for
    very long this forum has been vb for many years and the dates don't go back that far. It happens to tons of forums it the nature of the beast people love to hack.

    You must keep bakups then you can just restore the databases it pretty easy to do.

    It not just hacker the hdd can fail I keep backup of my hdd you just never know. Their is something you can have on a server that kicks in if one hard drive fails but I can't remember the technical term as I have pulled away from all the geeky stuff. I remember the name it's called raid.

    Am well behind on all my computer stuff I lost interest in it.
