All have noticed, no doubt that the forum's speed is slower than we have been accustomed to since the new server was installed.


The new Search Indexing program is running in the background, and nearing the 1 million mark.

As each additional post is added to the index, it gets slightly slower because of the huge size of the index.

Please be patient.

The end results will be more than worth the slight delays we are experiencing.

Try to avoid double clicking on POST/SEND and wait until the server responds to you.
That can be more than 15 seconds now of late, depends on how many people are logged in.


I have had a few PMs asking if "Is my computer slowing down, or is the forum slow?"

So, I thought I would make mention of the indexing routine once again.

Steve made mention of it about 3 weeks ago. We do not know how long it will take, but it is about 75 percent done or better now. But, as it gets closer to being done, it slows down a tad bit because of the huge cross referencing of each word in the index versus what posts that word can be found in.

Thanks for the info. I've recently scrapped Windows and am now using Linux, and I thought it had something to do with that. I'm relieved

We are into week three of the Search Forum rebuild, it was started on February 1st.
700,000 posts have been indexed so far. Jim at Ultra support is confident this will work as he recently did the same for another forum with about 600,000 total posts and it worked. As many of you will remember, two previous Search Function rebuild attempts by Jim and tanygaer failed.

I didn't want to turn the forum off like I did the first time we tried this, the downside is it will run a little slower until the rebuild is finished. Thanks for your patience.

Well that helps, thought it was my stuff or ISP, or figured maybe you'd moved the server to Kazakhstan.

Appreciate the update.
