Liberty's Edge

Recently I have made several searches and the results didn't display the most recent posts about the argument.
I searced:
- Community / Forums / Pathfinder / Pathfinder First Edition / Rules Question

As an example, if I search "gingerbread" in my posts I get 0 hits, while I posted at least 2 posts with that keyword in December, the most recent: itch#4.

If I search "gingerbread" in the first edition rule questions it shows one thread made in 2020 on the first page when searching for "By Relevance", but when I select Newest first, the first post is dated Dec 7, 2017, 08:02 and the other posts are even older.

When I use the dropdown menu to select "newest first", I get a screen that says "your search didn't match any items".

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I want to revive this one because it's still been happening. Currently the most recently I can search for anything is February 2022.

i will +1 this. the "newest" i search to is Feb this year for my two games.

Thanks for the report. We had an indexing payload large enough to completely jam our indexer, pausing search results from February onward. We resolved the issue and our indexer is now playing catch up. It's currently in late March, and I'd expect it to be completely caught up overnight.


just tried it out! fricken sweetness!
