    I installed Enhanced Search but it's crashing and need to upgrade the server to use it. The default XF SE is awful. What search do you guys use on your forums? My forum is about 1.25M posts. Thanks.

    ES is pretty much it and actually XF hardly utilizes it anyway and still XF search sucks. Most my members search my forum via Google.

    Like dethfiredethfire I use Google and that's what I recommend to my users.

    Threadloom is good, not sure if they have an XF2 implementation yet.

    We have released our XF2 implementation out of beta recently. It's free for forums up to 1M posts, and starts at $5 a month. More than happy to extend a 30 day trial to make sure it's a good fit for your community.

    Install is like other XF2 addons, but we do offer install assistance at no charge if you require it.

    I wish I would have known about this prior to upgrading my server and setting up ES. Do you have any demo forums using it? Thanks!

    Absolutely -
    Here is a side by side demo on a 5M+ post forum:
    HomesteadingToday

    One thing I'd ask is to look at the results, as they are different. Instead of just keywords, Threadloom digs deep to bring the best and most relevant content to the search resulting in longer time on page, additional pageviews and an overall satisfied user.

    We also offer a near instant image search as well - you can see it on this slightly less than 1M post forum:
    theMouthPiece

    On theMouthPiece you can also see our List Builder product that will allow you to build a double opted-in mailing list for your site, based on quality posts.
    I'm more than happy to answer any other questions you may have, as well as demo any of our products for you.

    Thanks. How does Threadloom work? Is it simply an addon? Can you please send the XF 2 integration?

    Hi pjkpjk -
    It's an addon, that uses our servers to process the searches - as far as sending you the XF2 integration. My recommendation is for you to sign up for an account - by going here. From there you can add your XF2 forum into the dashboard, and download the customized app for your site. Feel free to use the TAZVIP coupon code for your community.

    If you have any issues please feel free to reply to this thread, or to start a conversation with me.
