My bookmark for this forum (and all others) has always taken me straight to the 'Threads I've posted In' (or words to that effect) but something seems iffy.  I get different results with the same URL/Settings in the activity stream setting inbetween my desktop on base and my laptop back home.  It's been saying 'The search index is currently processing.' ever since the recent down time and I only see maybe 1 or 2 threads I've posted in; the only ones appearing are ones I've posted in since the update too.

I also very much miss the BB code view as I can't seem to stop this blue background, only change the actual text colour.

The index for the forum is being done slowly in the background. It is about 30% done so far. It’s going to take a bit as the forum is huge. I have been looking at ways to speed it up but haven’t seen anything as an option that I like. It will get there but the forum is just huge!

isnt there a code view when posting? I believe it’s the “source” button then you can see the code view. 

 

Does that help?

I had an inkling that may be the case but no dramas, thanks for the info.

I have a 'Code' button on Chrome desktop, but that's for inserting code.  Also a preview button but I'm not seeing a way to change that to a code view.

Yep that's the one.  If I'm being massively blind I apologise but as things stand I can't see a button for that like there was previously.

From readin the invision forums it appears that there's been some contention regarding BBcode. It's enabled, so you can add it into the post/reply box and it'll appear correctly but the parser turns it into HTML these days. I would love to find a custom button I could add to the CKEditor that enables BBcode view but I've not seen one yet.

Fingers crossed.  If not maybe just adding some other controls to the top of the reply input box (eg text background colours) if that's available.

Any update on the forum index?  I'm still getting the message about it and can't actually browse the way I always have in the past/do elsewhere.  Surprised it's still going if it was at 30% in early june.

Funnily enough I've just been in to upgrade the forums and saw that they've been running albeit slowly in the background. I've now set them to run in a tab on my browser here. I guess it'll take ages but hope that a bunch of stuff is done overnight if I leave this laptop running.

13% of the posts rebuilt. There's a lot to do, but I've now increased the setting son the server side to allow the background tasks more resources to crack on and get things done!

There's something stupid like 2.4 million posts for the script to chunk through. It was meant to do it in the background as users use the forum, but it's just not been quick enough.

Still running now, have asked the chaps at IPB if there's a way to get their script to run a bit faster.

It's part of the upgrade process. Sadly the task to rebuild the index is after the post rebuilds. My list looks like this:

Posts are at 22.5% complete. It was 17% when I left laptop on last night. I've tweaked the settings so it'll run unattended. At this rate it'll take a few days!

24.3 ....

Its the biggest task for the box to do, pity it won't complete the rest of the tasks in the meantime; sadly it has to do this first.

At least it's going now; it should have been running gradually in the background since the upgrade but due to me having the number of database connections too low it was bombing out.

Think I will have this laptop running for the next week to keep the tasks running.
