Search changes

Hi all,

I just rolled out some search changes. The two main things you should notice: search indexing is much quicker now (it updates with new content every 15 minutes) and also now comments (on paid accounts) are indexed.

Thank you for all of your patience with search. We outgrew our old trusty search machine and it's now retired. The new one is much larger, has faster disks, and should hold us in good standing for a while as we grow.

I'll be around all day and watching this post. Please let me know if you see any problems!

I am about four years overdue for an eye exam + new glasses, and I make misreadings like that ALL THE TIME. I can't remember what it was I misread today, but the misreading was "chastity".

Countdown until the first [site community profile] dw_maintenance porn ...

Or until someone starts a "Faster Dicks" ficathon.

(Unrelatedly, I have to admire your fine icon. Is that your cat confronting beets?)

It is, in fact, my cat confronting lumpy radishes and misshapen Danvers carrots, first fruits of the Garden of Suburbia.
and I totally didn't lure her into position with a wad of fresh catnip to stage the shot.

Also, huzzah for fic!

Yes, that does look a little like the wild-eyed catnip stare there, ready to pounce the moment one of those radishes makes a false move ..

This is a great change! I was pleasantly surprised to see new search results when I put in regular interests I search for. Thank you for all your efforts!

"also now comments (on paid accounts) are indexed"

As in we can now search for public comments made by a certain user?

It still does not search Cyrillic text. What a shame.

[personal profile] alierak 2013-02-18 17:20 (UTC)(link)
Looks like Sphinx can do this but we've left Cyrillic chars out of our charset_table. I guess we would need to add something like "U+410..U+42F->U+430..U+44F, U+430..U+44F" and then reindex everything? [staff profile] mark?

[personal profile] victor_sudakov 2013-02-19 03:16 (UTC)(link)
Sphinx most certainly can do Cyrillic searches, at least sphinxsearch-devel-2.0.1b_1 on FreeBSD does that for me.

[personal profile] victor_sudakov 2013-02-19 04:22 (UTC)(link)
It seems to work now with one limitation: it searches only for exact matches, not word forms. I also tried searching with wildcards, it does not work either.

Even in this way, it would be a great improvement.

There is no difference, sorry to say. It still finds only exact matches for Cyrillic text.

[personal profile] victor_sudakov 2013-02-19 06:40 (UTC)(link)
OK, take the initial form (Nominative case, singular) of the word общение (meaning communication) and try to search for its different forms like общения общению общением общении

This word is present here: http://victor-sudakov.dreamwidth.org/162749.html in the prepositional case.

Help!! I'm using Practicality, and have had no issues, have done nothing to the layout any time recently... and the sidebar is mostly off-screen on the left when I'm on my reading page. (It's fine in my journal though).

Have a screenshot:  photo DWborked_zps663b5db5.jpg

The paler bit all the way to the left is my sidebar which should be sitting in that dark green blank space.

Here's a screenshot of what it ought to look like:  photo DWfine_zps81378546.jpg

This has only happened to me this morning, and I know I've done nothing, so it's got to be someone else, somewhere. Help?

it's almost certainly somebody on your reading page posting something with broken HTML! it's not happening for me, so it's likely something in a protected entry that you have access to. If you can figure out which entry it is, you might want to let the poster know. :)
