Is the Search function getting everything?

  • 6

Or was there a problem with your import? I was looking for an old thread on Chaa Chaa Thai in the East Village, NY, but it didn't come up on the CH search. If you do a Google search, you can see that a thread called Chaa Chaa Thai on East 13th St used to exist:

  1. Somebody suggested to me that I do a "Topics Only" search to find the threads I wasn't finding. It worked in my case.

    1. I know of at least a few old threads that I cannot find on the new site.

      I recall reading that they were continuing to import old material as time permitted. I wonder if that's still going on.

        We completed all the importation within the first few days of launching the new site. Not 100% of everything came over, since some sections of the old boards were corrupted in various ways. Old posts that are missing may be a search problem, or they may be lost for good.

          Any chance of putting up a read-only copy of the old board for a limited time to retrieve some of that material?

            Thanks – if old posts were imported but are not turning up via a search, should we able to find them by paging backward to the date of the thread (viewing by date started)?
