Feel the Power ... of Sphinx Search

This site runs on IPBoard. IPBoard is great in many respects, but searching just isn't one of them. Some complained about the terrible search feature, which required (nearly) an exact match to the query entered.

I've installed Sphinx search capabilities to address these issues. For example, you can now you can search the e-Sword downloads for "will" and see results for William, William's, etc. Sphinx also does a much better job of matching search queries with results where the search query doesn't exactly match the query the person entered.

And as the e-Sword forums grow with more content, this will certainly help people find older posts more easily. Sphinx indexes the Tutorials section, as well.

Right now, Sphinx re-indexes our databases once every 10 minutes, so there will be a slight lag between when content becomes available and when it can be found in the search.
