It doesn't. It uses php & MySQL.

Moving to LQ Feedback forum.

We currently use the MySQL FULLTEXT functionality, but will likely be moving to Sphinx in the near future.

Why not use Google Search?

jeremy 12-15-2010 03:55 PM

While we do offer Google Search as an alternative, it's in no way a viable alternative to having a native search index. It offers nearly none of the stock functionality (show me threads with no replies, show me threads started by $foo, search by post instead of thread) and there no way to ensure every single thread is indexed by Google.

I think I meant Google Site or Custom Search.

We offer Custom Search as I mentioned, and neither of those in any way mitigate a single example I gave.
