Hey folks!

Since everybody else is apparently working on overdrive I figured I should get off my lazy behind and get some work done as well. So I finally upgraded my hosting package to allow for larger databases and lo and behold I was finally able to activate the forums search functions.

So, no more using google search or blindly looking through threads. You can now finally properly search the forum :)
The search result page might look a bit funny as it has not been adapted to the new look, but it's not too bad and since I have a killer headache I think it might be a while before I'll change that.

Happy searching and hope you like it :)

OM:zensur:G! Finally!

Thank you Force Flow...google and others were not very reliable at properly indexing the threads.

Glad to hear it :) Now I just have to fix all those other problems that popped up due to the upgrade. :kopfwand:

Plenty of error messages showing up all over the pages... Really annoying!

Dear Forceflow, thank you for all the efforts for this forum and the website.
I was wondering... you are paying for all the stuff and the hosting package, right?
Why not to activate a paypal donation button for "XWAUP maintenance"?
I would be honored to contribute, obviously without any claim, demands and interference afterwards.
Just a tiny idea i got.

Thanks for the offer, and yes I am paying for the hosting and stuff. It was however always the idea that the XWAU is a strict non-profit project. Besides the fact that this could lead into some legal issues I also see some potential problems with on how to distribute the money. The webpackage that the XWAU is being hosted on is on a shared account that I also use for other things.
For now I can afford it, and considering how much time and effort all the other members put into the project it wouldn't feel right that I am the only one getting reimbursed for my contribution.
