New posts created from approx 4am on 25/10 to approx 4am this morning are not being returned in Search Results.

Look out for dupes etc.

    Thank you very much for posting this - yes, I noticed this too.
    I was searching for the most recent That's Life and Take a Break weeklies but they didn't come up in repeated searches. (They are there, however - posted on 25/10 from around 8.45pm, in case anyone else is hunting for them!)

    As I feared, yesterday's threads are now also missing from search results.

    Threads are missing from approx 4am 25/10 to 4am 27/10.

    There is a growing danger of Dupes

    thanks for hiliting this one-eye, it's also causing a problem with saved/subscribed/threads for me as example midnighters usual threads of loveitmagazine are only showing the 'issue 659' but
    issue 660 has already been posted.

    This happened before, a few years ago.
    Can't remember how we coped before it was fixed.
    Maybe some other old hands may recall?
    Worse things will have happened in the world today...

    It was very similar but not exactly the same. When MSE finally realised there was a problem, I think the whole system was shut down and rebooted, and search took most of the following day to rebuild.

    I have already resorted to using google for searching.
    Click on "Tools", "Any Time" and then "Past Week" or "Past Month" to cut down the number of results.

    examples of searches:

    Last time, I seem to recall a post (In Chat?) where newly listed comps were put for another reference point. I think Toniq was involved in setting it up and maintaining it.

    As we hurtle ever closer towards month end... :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Search only the Competitons forum - example put this in your chosen search engine

    loveitmagazine site:https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/forumdisplay.php?f=72 should do it, I think
