is it just me or is the search and 'view new posts' etc not working, i get a access denied thing
least its not just me
*pokes RTT* fix it, fix it now!!
same here - very annoying, I live by the 'view new posts' thingy.
Apologies, the forums should have given you a polite message from myself, but it seems yet another thing that doesn't work on vBulletin.
I disabled it temporarily (~24 hours) whilst we have a high number of guests generating load -- search is one of vBulletin's worst functions for server load - and after I managed to topple the server for 2 mins, i decided to disable it for now
works for mods though
Urm... am I the only one thinking... "Just enable it for registered users and mods?"
I thought it already was enabled for registered users only.....
what I think the issuse rtt is trying to tell us is that the search is wasting bandwidth so since we have an influx of guest he took it off line to help save a bit of bandwidth
Lots of guests? I'm guessing it's the Orac 3 article generating so much traffic?
Not just saving transfer* but also, as he said, to reduce server load. ie, cpu stress.
When you're serving up a high count of pages, and then several people are all searching, it generates 'nuff overhead.
* Bah @ bandwidth.
noooooooooooo! I need to search!
