Is Threadloom the new kid on the block. The one that kicks ElasticSearch's, Sphinx's and mySQL full-text's butt?

Threadloom search is now running live on TAZ. Run a couple of searches and check it out! :)

I only posted that fish because it looks hilarious.

Not because I think something is fishy!

Can we get a happy fish??!!

Search results look cool. I like that it shows the list on the left sidebar.

The results are definitely more clean looking than typical XF search results.

I'm a little perplexed - is this part of Threadloom and if it is why does is say 'no matches' (highlighted in yellow) when clearly the word 'threadloom' is mentioned in several places? It could be both misleading and confusing to someone who is unfamiliar with searching.

Using standard search for Pokemon reveals 7 pages of results - weird!

:confused:

See if this is better now - I changed the settings on the Elastic Search Essentials add-on. If not, I'll just disable that feature.

Threadloom search is only active on simple searches (i.e. searches where you put in your search term(s) in this box):

You can get our standard search results (on TAZ that's XenForo Enhanced Search plus the Elastic Search Essentials add-on) by going to the Advanced Search screen (i.e. click the red magnifying glass icon on the left of the standard search box):

The "no matches" is from my ElasticSearch Essentials add-on. The Sandman might need to re-index threads for it, the notifications that you need to re-index on install are a little buggy. It is on my todo list to look into, this todo list is very long :(

Any chance of providing TL searches on a checkbox check, Howard? I get the feeling people will be irritated having to go to the full search page just to find something.

I ran two searches yesterday. Basic words, and it didn't find anything. I just ran a search on "chicken" and it popped up no results on the little window and when I hit the return key, I got what might be results but I'm not sure.

Did you uncheck the "Search this forum only" box?

No. Now I do get results when hitting the return key but nothing on the instant search. "No Match."
You mean the auto-complete? That's not Threadloom, that's Elastic Search Essentials.and it's acting up. I'm gonna disable it for now until Xon1 has a chance to look at it. I already rebuilt the search index and tried changing the options several times.

Oh alright. Never mind then. I don't use the site enough or any forum these days to keep up with what's standard and what's not. By the way, did you install a beeping mod for alerts?

No, would you like one?
