Search broken

Every search I do has zero results. Searching via Google's index of the board with the same terms does yield results. Anyone else having this issue?

Since the update you seem to only get results from September 17' on when you search in forum.

Is there a way to have this fixed? I can't see myself heading over to go to google first to search on a website for a long time.
I do appreciate the hard work of the admins to keep this lovely forum up and running!

I just tried to search for, ‘Kemper’ but nothing came up. Before at least the posts from September 17 showed up.

I had to completely delete the search index when I moved the site to the new server. I tried rebuilding it but it seems like it only got posts from 2006 and 2007 and everything posted today. I'll give it another shot when I can do it from my computer and leave it running all night. Stay tuned...

Edit: seems to be returning all results now. Try and and let me know if something still appears to be missing.

First off, thank you for solving all these little unforeseen problems that keep popping up.

Secondly, based on my two different searches I agree, everything seems back to normal. :D

Thanks for your hard work!
