Hey Folks,

We've been aware of the search system working very poorly for some time. We've bitten the bullet and set in motion a search database rebuild. With more than 100,000 posts to cache, this may take some time. (this is why we've hesitated taking this step)

In the meantime, You may note the search function returning no results - this is a side effect of the rebuild. The rebuild could take 1 hour, to 1-2 days, depending on many factors. We'll let you know when we know it's back to normal!

Thanks,
John

Update: I've made some changes and search has returned, albeit without the awesome sorting and optimisation that is the Elastisearch plugin. Consider this a duct tape fix that's holding for now :)
