How about mod to FIX THE SEARCH BUILDING CODE

I don't think anybody is working on this. I use my board all the time, so do hundreds of other people. I see the board turn to mud when certain posts are made. CPU shoots into the red. I can put up a one "word" post that will cause a query to hang for 5 minutes. If whoever wrote the code could look ...

If the user has never posted, you should be okay using phpmyadmin though.

Ah, very handy then. I notice sometimes posting takes quite a bit of time -- would likely time out if there was a limit. I have a hard time conceptualizing the arrays. Do you know which of the arrays listed is the last array before it has to start inserting words? Any idea what the code to check to ...

Here's the problem area: function split_words($entry, $mode = 'post') { // If you experience problems with the new method, uncomment this block. /* $rex = ( $mode == 'post' ) ? "/\b([\w±µ-ÿ][\w±µ-ÿ']*[\w±µ-ÿ]+|[\w±µ-ÿ]+?)\b/" : '/(\*?[a-z0-9±µ-ÿ]+\*?)|\b([a-z0-9±µ-ÿ]+)\b/'; preg_match_all($rex, $ent...

Yes, I have a file I modified, search_stopwords.txt It contains 288 common words, some are unique to my board because of content. They are indeed the most common from my analysis of the whole database using a script to sort words by frequency. I used to have a wbb board that searched the whole datab...

Thanks for the link to the decreasing tables page. I think I found it and tried it some time ago (to run the script) but was not successful. I think the first of the changes he suggests may have been taken care of by now (what you have right now is search_stopword everywhere except where it referenc...

There are no error messages. What I see is the cpu shooting up and the query taking longer and longer (mytop). I have a monitoring script from someone using the same host. What I recommend is you do a test post on this board (or your own) that uses one or two common words like this, the, there, and,...

Bad table building killing forum-- please fix flaw in phpbb!

I mentioned this maybe a year ago. Nothing was ever done. It's still happening and as my board gets bigger and bigger it is affecting how it works even more. The construction of the search tables is faulty. It is killing my board! I see other people complain about slowness and I see this happening o...

3 seconds to post above post. The search will tell you what common words this board is using (it won't search common words and will come up with nothing if you enter "the", "too", etc. etc.).

21 seconds on a Sunday morning on this board to post "Me too". You need to try it here. Depending on the version you have, your common word list may or may not be functioning properly. There was a point maybe a year or two ago when a correction was made to get it to work. Use this board to compare p...

I couldn't find the bug forum a year ago. I notice nothing has been done to fix this (short posts with common words like "and" or "the" take a long time to process -- up to 10 times as long as a regular post).

Anyone have a link to the bug forum?
