I think we need to setup ElasticSearch for the search index

This sounds amazing! The forum search has always been a bit unhelpful (to say the least) — if this will make it better overall, it's a welcome addition 🙂

Yep, it's a pity that such a treasury of knowledge does not have a good search. I think nobody, who has been here for more than a couple of months, searches anything but restricted areas with the built-in search. Everybody uses google CSE of their own or the one in Tracy Debugger. So upgrading in this area would be just awesome. In-built google search would be perfect, as it has all the clever logic, but it wouldn't work for pro modules sections and other restricted areas. If choosing our own search engine I would suggest to take a look at Sphinx search, as it could be easier to setup, than Elastic.

I personally don't think that forum search is bad - it's quite flexible, you can search with AND and OR logical operators on words, search in different topics and forums, choose whether to search in titles and body or in titles only. What can be improved is searching synonyms for words like Google does, i.e. when we search for "teapot", we also should get results for "kettle".

Hi @Pete

Most likely this is a common problem for Invision board.
The subscription letter comes in two formats - text and html.
Everything is correct in html, but the link in the text is broken.

As example:

Go to this Post:

No need mask ampersand here.
