    Threadloom – the 1st cloud-hosted site search engine designed specifically for forums – is now available via Early Access. It is currently compatible with vBulletin 4.2.x and XenForo 1.5.5 or higher.

    With Threadloom, you no longer have to worry about index maintenance, search captchas, search-induced table locks, or poor quality results. Instead, you can finally give your users the modern search features they’ve been waiting years for without adding any add’l server resources, including:
    • A graceful way to view threads and posts in search results
    • A fast and easy way to filter results by forum
    • True real-time indexing and search results
    • Fast user and tag restricts
    • Advanced spell correction
    • Responsive UI
    Threadloom takes 5 minutes for most forums to install, is fully encrypted, is 99.9% available with redundancy across multiple data centers, and automatically scales to meet any level of user demand on your forum.

    Threadloom is free during Early Access (lasting until at least the end of Sept. 2016). In addition, forums who install and provide feedback on Threadloom during Early Access will receive 1 year of service for free.

    For more information on features and to see some sample customer installations, visit our website; and to apply for Early Access, submit a 2-minute survey.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    What happens if I chose not to use you after the free 1-year? Do I lose any data?

    No, you don't lose any data. At any point in time if you decide to stop using Threadloom, you can uninstall it like you would with any plug-in, and your search will automatically revert to what you were using before Threadloom.

    What if you have other client accessing the site, will apps like Tapatalk still work and be able to search?

    Set it up so the banner doesn't show. Then disable new sign-ups for it, and don't advertise it to new users. Over time natural attrition will reduce the number of people using it to the point you can dump it, or by then have more options open to you (such as the two apps for Xenforo).

    When someone is searching, it says "viewing unknown page". It doesn't say searching.

    Threadloom doesn't interfere with Tapatalk; so yes, it will continue to work and be able to search your site.

    Ah man...I posted a reply about it, but maybe forgot to press the post button.

    It looks clean and a bit more organized than regular search. That's for sure...

    I submitted my application.

    Wasn't sure how to answer the FastCGI answer. But if I look at my PHP info FastCGI is listed.

    Server API - FPM/FastCGI

    I didn't know what to say either, they have a way to check for you (at least they did for me). Very helpful folks.
