Re: Search timeout.

Well I agree with that, my board has been online 11 years and there are thousands of useful posts, fast, reliable search is imperative.

Maybe it has just been over-looked as a requirement, highlighting it can only be a good thing.

Re: Search timeout.

Big Monstro, you've nailed it. 8-) Installed the PHP module for mbstring and the difference in speed at which search results now return is night and day !

Re: Search timeout.

Thanks, I'm not so worried about it, just thought if the OP had resolved it then it'd be useful to know how or why.

Since it seems to be related to the single quotes in my case, I'll just tell users not to do that and assume it's a bug.

Re: Spacer between Stickies and other posts?

Yes I just use the extension now in 3.2.2. I tend to check for extensions on each upgrade to save the custom edits.

Re: Settings for SMPT with Gmail

Robert, G-Suite isn't free, it's a service from Google to host your own domain there for emails much like Office365 from Microsoft. It has nothing to do with free Gmail accounts.

Re: Settings for SMPT with Gmail

Hi Robert,

You're not right there, Gmail can be used for business through G-Suite which allows you to use your own @yourdomain.com as I mentioned earlier in the thread and this is how I'm configured.

Re: Images Hijacked by Photobucket?

I've suffered from this on my forum, not only is it sad to lose all of the pictures but the error logo is causing strange pagination if the images were in a signature etc. I've just run the first script and it's identified 50,100 externally linked images - 37,000 of which are to photobucket :? Thank...

Re: Spacer between Stickies and other posts?

Any bits which are removed are replaced by something else, so no Announcements are not removed ;) If you backup your files first you can easily revert back by putting the original files back so you could just try it and see how it goes? :D Here's a screenshot of my board. http://i229.photobucket.com...
