Solved Search function gets stuck at 16 pages

Post by TonnyKamper on September 8th 2018, 9:43 pm

Hi everyone, I'm searching for an answer to a problem one of the members on our Dutch support forum encountered, I couldn't solve it and we have no coders available at the moment, this person doesn't speak English, so I'm asking the question for her..

When she uses the search function to look up a post of a member, or topics of herself, the system only delivers 16 pages while she knows for a fact that she herself posted almost 50.000 topics, so it's obvious they don't fit in the 16 pages that are shown Think



I asked her to disable javascripts and put the templates to default to see if it would improve the amount of pages on the search, but to no avail..
Does anyone has any idea what can be the cause of this problem?
Her forum version is phpBB2 and the url is: https://pspismagic.actieforum.com/forum

Thanks in advance for any assistance Help me

Thank you for your respons @skouliki Smile

So does that mean there's a limit to the display of the amount of pages in the search function?
Or is something or some script blocking it to display more? Because you say here it displays only max. 12 pages and on her site it displays max. 16 pages, that's not an equal amount. It makes me wonder why there's a difference between here and her site? That indicates to me that it's not a set amount by the system.. or am I totally wrong with this assumption? Think

Hello,

The search system has some limitations. It can only find a certain number of posts or topics, after it hits the limit it will stop like it did for this user. I am not sure what the exact limit is, but I know there is one and that is likely what is causing the problem. Unfortunatelly there is nothing we can do about this.

Edit: The limit appears to 337 posts or topics. As I have over 7,000 posts on here and the system was only able to find 337 posts:
