How long does it take for the search engine to add me to the list?
I am trying to invite friends and family to see my "space" but when you search my name, username, nothing shows up. I know I can directly link them but it would be nice for people to be able to find me
Any help would be appreciated
Hrm, looks like a bug. Most things happening on the site (including user registration, iirc) should be indexed in near real time. Your post already shows up if you search this forum for "long" posted by psulyma - but yes, the member search seems completely oblivious to your existence.
I suspect/hope that once one of the overlords sees this, they can kick the indexer and get it fixed right away.
Welcome to Travellerspoint! Sorry about the search problem. I suspect that the search indexing is having some problem refreshing itself and got stuck with an old set of data. Photos I uploaded yesterday didn't turn up in the search results either. Anyway, the admin has been notified about this.
I'm running a refresh on both the users and photos index now. Should clear up any missing items. It usually takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
Usually, new members are added within 10 minutes, so it definitely was a glitch somewhere along the way.
Just tried. Everything, including Paul's, turned up in search results.
Thanks guys. Really appreciate it. I have been so busy preparing to leave I completely forgot about the problems I had
It appears everything is all good!
