just a thought: change the default of the search system to title only, and not to entire posts like it is today. i see that this can decrease a lot the hardware effort - server load. but parallel will produce much less results. these results would not be sufficient?
generally, we have good titles for the threads//posts. i think just changing the default of this feature would give some air and a better performance.
what you guys think about that?
i agree with you. and that is why i proposed that.
the idea is not killing a feature is just changing the default.
like jeremy wrote, in red, in the search page, people just type "samba" and put the load in the server.
my intention here is to make people think better about search keyword and then, only after that, change the option to "entire post" back.
Ah, good point. It would be a less friendly UI, but maybe putting search options at the top of the page instead of below the search term fields would help too. Get people to focus their search down to one or two sub-forums, and make "search all forums at once" an impossible option.
Less friendly indeed, but if the load on the search server is becoming a problem this might help.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
I'd prefer we keep the default as the entire post, as it's much more useful and it's what people expect. We're working on getting more hardware now and have some ideas on making the search a bit more efficient.
