Default Search Feature temporarily turned off [Update: Turned back on]

I have temporarily turned off the integrated search feature in the forums while we try and figure out why it is crashing the site. Again, this will be temporary..

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks,
David

ahh gee, I bugged a staffer when all along it was explained here. I should learn to read the forum first before bugging staffers!

I thought I was the clever one who recognized a potential glitch! LOL

Maintenance is never an easy thing. Being from the tech world (my former job), I can totally relate to the frustrations of having issues that seem to haunt us.

Thank you for ALL of your efforts.

Ahhh, now I understand why the search feature isn't working. I can't view, "new posts" either. Is this because I have rarely posted over the years? If so, it is no problem. If I need to post some more in order to earn certain privileges here that's fine.

No the search feature also includes the "new posts" so its nothing to do with your post count.
It is being worked on and hopefully it will be resolved soon

I had to do a search on dis subject from google to figure out y the searching has been disabled since I couldn't search 4 a technical support link. I didn't realize till now y some things aren't working right. Well now @ least I kno, I understand dis is temporary but how temporary is temporary lol. I haven't logged on here 4 such a long time & now i've been in the mood to actually b on here & features can't b used. It's been a few days now that I can't view my statistics on thanked posts.

We are all eagerly awaiting the return of the search feature. It is frustrating, but hang in there! The problem is being worked on.

Remember that all of the staff members and administrators here are volunteers, and PTO is funded by donations. When there aren't enough donations to cover the monthly expenses (which is often, unfortunately), the site owner comes out of his own pocket to keep PTO up and running. These server issues have created extra expenses and timely repairs... So I hope everyone can understand why this is taking a while to fix.

since the search has been disabled, what i've been doing to search for something on pto is go to google and where you type to lookup something type:

site: prisontalk.com [enter what u want to search]


minus the brackets of course, (and minus the space after the colon, it kept showing the smily so i had to put a space) and it will show results all from pto.

I'm sorry for the delay on getting this feature back online. I've just created a new thread related to this and other performance issues located here:
http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/sho....php?p=6184044

Short version is we should have a new search engine installed and operating (hopefully) by the middle of next week. All search features will then be turned back on.

My apologies for the pains this has caused.

Thanks,
David
