Quote from: Arantor on February 21, 2023, 10:34:42 AMI assume the Sphinx connector was updated because I assume it's still in use here.There are no connectors for ES at this time and honestly, so much more work needs to happen under the hood to make it in any way worthwhile.
Quote from: Col on February 21, 2023, 10:32:22 AMIs there any reasonable option for adding ElasticSearch or Sphinx to an SMF 2.1 forum?

Quote from: Arantor on February 23, 2023, 05:52:19 PMThat's kind of one of the problems: while Sphinx has supported real time index updates for years, the connector doesn't. Even if SphinxQL supports it (which is the reaosn in the Sphinx bridge for why it's listed as not supporting it), the connector doesn't.Solutions for this were documented in the Sphinx docs whereby you build the main index, then have a delta index so that you have the bulk of content in the main index which you update infrequently, and then have recent stuff covered by the delta index.
