Searching Re-Enabled + Archives

Recommended Posts

Tank

Registered members may now use the search feature again. Apologies for the frustration this caused, but this was the only short-term move we could think of to keep the forums alive at the time.

 

As you may or may not be aware, topics that have not had replies within the past 2 months have been moved to an archive. The plan is to make this archive read-only on a fully-searchable separate dedicated forum, so it does not affect the performance of the main forums. A facility to allow moderators to easily move specific topics from the archive forum to the main database is currently being developed.

And just how exactly are you going to get the data moved between two databases?

 

I am not quite familiar with such an aproach. And mostly if they are on two seperated servers.

The topic/posts will be physically moved from one DB to another. The archive forum will be completely separate from the current GTAForums. Transferring is easy; SELECT the data from the archive database based on the topic ID #, INSERT the topic/post(s) into the main database, and finally DELETE the topic/post(s) from the archive database.

Yeah, we should at least be able to see it as a Read-only. That would be great.

Sure, no problem. Send me your PayPal e-mail address and password and I'll see if I can arrange this.

Good work on the search being up again, considering I used it yesterday, lol...
