phpbb make jokes on search option

Post by q250 »

How could it be phpbb itself giving users maximum crappy search engine and even dont bother to use it by itself... phpbb.com uses google search because if they choose to search by their own search engine server will go down...

Its so bad, so resource consuming and for board with same amount of posts/users (even more online at once) its impossible to keep alive server... even if... server load is around 33.5... of course everyhing would be beautiful if we buy extra server only for search option but sorry, dun have cash.

So... implement some more efficient search engine (open source) or write one because its joke for so popular script like phpbb to make laught from users giving them "search which kills servers".

Good luck.

I'm sure the developers will look forward to seeing whatever code you offer up to achieve the goal that you seem to think is very simple.

Good luck!

Actually phpbb.com does not solely rely on google, but that's beside the point. The search system is pluggable, you can write yourself a search backend to fit your server capabilities and post number; two such backends are included with phpBB and more will appear in the future. Anyhow, a well configured server won't be killed by a search.

Well, I guess Internet Explorer has to be considered male, so it should be "delendum".
If you also want to translate the software name, then it is "Ceterum censeo Explorator Interretis esse delendum", or shorter "Explorator Interretis delendum est". :lol:

No idea what that means, I also don't think quicquid is a latin word, maybe quidquid?

Ok, found it, it's definitely quidquid... http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=723844
