Searching here is constantly complained about. Slow, sucky, bad results, etc.

Fix'd

BF2S forums are now running Sphinx -- a super kick ass, dedicated searching system. And it's blazing fast -- no more "please wait while we forward you to the results" screens. Just results, now.

- http://forums.bf2s.com/sphinx.php

Here's a fun search to get you started off on the things this can do better:

- http://forums.bf2s.com/sphinx.php?q=quo … rch=Submit
  Find replies quoting chuyskywalker, newest first

Also, Sphinx supports some intensely advanced querying options which you can use to get very detailed results.

Finally, there is no pagination -- this is intended. Most people who don't find what they want on page 1, usually just change their search terms -- this is now setup to work in the flow very nicely by keeping the search form on the results page.

Please leave feedback on how it's working (or not). Thanks!

Please note: the index is NOT being updated right now. So newer posts (than about the time of this post) will NOT show up as they are not in the index yet. The index is now being updated every 10 minutes.

Great work chuy, thanks.

I'd often search for something I know I had posted only to have no results return.

I especially like the Extended query syntax to include searching with "AND" "NOT" "OR" etc.

Plus it looks simple too.

edit: oh cool the results are displayed right underneath it!

Really? I never saw it after the hundreds of search I've done here .. I must have trained myself to ignore it.

Apparently I never made it that far down.

Bahahahah. Ironic that mods know less about the search than normal members.

Especially considering I probably spend twice as much time here than you . I like it as a radio button.
I think I even made a video once of how to search (being sarcastic).

90 percent of my searches are me searching something I posted earlier. .. for referencing in another topic. I'm my own favorite fan.

Cool work Chuy.
It never really worked though, nothing worked in Search. Well for me it didn't. None of the parameters would do as they were told. Even the actual words you asked for it to search for wouldn't work properly.

Sometime this week when I get a change to work on it. The old "search.php" has to stick around still since it does stuff like "new posts" etc.

Man, that whole "quote=chuyskywalker" thing is so fucking killer. I need to make an RSS variant of the search results

Hey now that's pretty fucking handy. It's basically like seeing who has replied to your posts.

Search term: quote=liquidat0r

Right now. All done. Old search.php is still around, but it's needed for silly things like "New Posts" etc.
