Description

Threadloom Search provides an easy way to upgrade your forum with cloud search. It is 10x faster than vBulletin search. It also gives you image search, spell correction, and WordPress search.


Examples

Threadloom is installed on 1000+ forums with 500M posts, including: 4x4 Community SA, Air Rifle SA, AULRO, AZ Billiards, Baby Bargains, BayouShooter, Fiat Forum, FreedomCardBoard, Golden Skate, Muscle Mecca.

Compare Threadloom vs. vBulletin search in real-time on AZBilliards.

Threadloom has dramatically boosted our site's search effectiveness, lowered bounce rates and increased the time folks are staying on our site. Our members are amazed at how fast Threadloom returns results . . . And the accuracy blows away the old search engine!

On Monday we released a plug-in update (v2.0.11) that includes a minor backend update to support Threadloom Newsletter and adds compression. Compression saves 80% of bandwidth and 5-10% of sync time. v2.0.11 can be downloaded from the Threadloom portal. Full release notes.

Just wanted to take a second to give this tool a big thumbs up. Incredibly easy to install, site crawled within 24 hours as advertised, amazingly accurate search results. Leaps and bounds improvement over the crappy vBulletin search option.

Very impressed!

I second this

my site took about 30 hours, but it was still around 500k posts an hour. Plus given the ability to add customized search results is going to make a big difference overall


Kudos to Paul at Threadloom for wonderful communication during this process.

also must say after taking a peek on this i agree with what others are saying and encourage everyone to take a look if you havent already.....in particular any image sites that want searchable content, can be a bit of a game changer.

smooth install and great support as well....nice work

really great to see....things like this modern addition is even more towards what is making vb4 surpass vb5 functionality and keeping it one of the best platforms to build off these days.

thank you

I'm not exactly familiar with what you are referring to, sphinx search by chance? Can you link me to some more documentation.

That said, most of the forum searches are not as tweaked and user focused due to the complexity of Search itself. With Threadloom Search you have all the tweaks and user focused content built in.

For the "last threads of a user" that still will relay on your server/site to retrieve that. You can search by user with our add-on, you can modify the templates to do what you are asking to do.

Would love to give you a demo, would you like to test it out?

Over the past week, some customers have reported slow search speeds with Threadloom Search. We've reproduced the issue and can confirm that this is an issue with our infrastructure.

Over the past year, Threadloom Search has grown rapidly to serve tens of millions of users. As a result, we have been migrating to a more scalable solution that combines Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Elastic Cloud.

As part of this migration, some customers are experiencing faster search speeds, while others have been impacted by configuration and production issues that have resulted in slow search speeds. This occurs primarily during US daytime hours.

We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. In addition to tackling the aforementioned issues, we are in the process of quintupling the number of cores in our deployment.

As we work through this issue, you may notice some delays to real-time indexing, and periodic interruptions to your cloud sync. This is normal, but if you have any concerns or questions, feel free to reach out to us via email or chat. We will also post updates here as we make progress.

In the meantime, if your site is affected by slow search speeds, please feel free to toggle Threadloom Search off in the your Admin Control Panel (Options > Threadloom). However, we would like to ask customers to continue to keep cron jobs active, in order to help us with our troubleshooting.

Finally, for all paying customers of Threadloom Search, we are issuing credits to cover the rest of 2018 (this month and next month).

We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience and understanding.
