    Vastly Improved Search Engine for AA now installed.

    The most frustrating thing about the vbulletin forum software is it's terrible search engine. The only advantage a forum like this has over newer here and gone social media is a forum is basically an archive of information but it's only as good as the search function.
    As it stands you can't even type in simple things like RGB or Neo Geo and get a result, very frustrating as I'm sure anybody whose tried to search on this site knows.

    I did some research and heard great things about the Sphinx open source search server. I've purchased the mod for AA but Sphinx itself needs to be installed on the server when the server OP gets time to look at it.

    I'll let everybody know if/when it happens and any downtime.
    Cheers
    Travis

    Edit: Setup and working good!

      cwispy installed it last night, it just needs the config files set and uploaded, rebuild the search index and hopefully we should be good to go.

      I should have done this years ago.

                      I forgot to mention you can now search PM's too. In your inbox at the top left there's a new search box there.

                      Feedback would be appreciated.
