    When I do a search on the forum, it only retrieves results up to 4 months back. Is there any way to get it to retrieve older posts?

    Google does not enable one to do a refined search by user name etc. Is there something wrong with the forum search?

    ...that would be around the time we migrated the forum from vBulletin to XenForo, early December 2014.

    Perhaps the archived posts are no longer searchable??? I'll need to ask @Bulldog to clarify/expand on that.

    How many items is it returning on the search? I think it is set to return 2,000 items as a maximum. I'll have to look to see how the search options are set.

    It returns about six and half pages of posts. That's nowhere near 2000.

    I was mistaken. It was only set to return 200 results. I have increased it to 1,000. Give it another go.

    Thanks Bulldog, that's a lot better, but unfortunately it's still not picking up some older posts. Can you please set it to 2000? Thanks.

    I have increased it to 2,000. If there is any impact on the overall performance of the forum I will have to reduce it.
