Attachment 156487

Threadloom is the first cloud search engine designed specifically for forums. Two months after installing Threadloom, searches on increased six-fold, while the time to complete a search decreased 90%. Sessions with a site search showed greater engagement compared to the year prior – lower bounce rates, more pages per session, and longer session durations.

Threadloom has dramatically boosted our site's search effectiveness, lowered bounce rates and increased the time folks are staying on our site. Our members are amazed at how fast Threadloom returns results . . . And the accuracy blows away the old search engine!

This release addresses an issue with display of Latin-1 characters, and includes improvements for scheduled task data transfers.

  • Handle rare cases where the size of posts exceeds HTTP transfer limits.
  • Reduce size of data sent by server during scheduled task run. Results in faster task run-time.

  • Fixed display of Latin-1 characters in the header and footer of the search results page.
  • Fixed how we query for the number of table rows when the scheduled task runs.

All versions: Image search

Image search is now available for all Threadloom customers.
  • If you’re already using Threadloom, just install the latest plug-in from the Threadloom Portal (v2.0.6 or later for XenForo, v2.0.8 or later for vBulletin). Then, in the Portal, go to Search Settings and turn on Image Search. Just like with its sister feature, Custom Search Tabs, there is no additional charge for Image Search – they’re both included in your plan. So search on and let us know what you think!
  • If you haven’t tried Threadloom yet, sign up here. It’s completely free for smaller forums, and all of our plans for larger forums include a free 30-day trial.
