Threadloom Search for XenForo 1.5.x

Threadloom Search for XenForo 1.5.x 2.1.1

No permission to download
  • Fix for Template error in admin logs
  • Better translation between native XF search and Threadloom search (filters getting passed appropriately)
  • Known issue:
    • Search with filter using native search -> click to view Threadloom results -> click back to native results: filter gets lost going back to native results
Threadloom Search is now available as a supplemental option to the native forum search

In addition to various fixes and improvements, this update includes a new feature that lets your forum members choose (and save) Threadloom Search or your native forum search engine as their default search engine. You no longer have to choose between the two – your members can have both. As an admin, however, you are able to set either option as the default search engine for new visitors to your forum. You can learn more from our blog post here.

On Monday we released a plug-in update that includes a minor backend update to support Threadloom Newsletter and adds compression. Compression saves 80% of bandwidth and 5-10% of sync time. v2.0.9 can be downloaded from the Threadloom portal. Full release notes.

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.

2.0.8 – released 2017-06-13

Better handling of real-time index update requests for new and edited threads and posts. Better ensures that site performance does not degrade due to API backend latency or outages.

  • Real-time index update requests run only after a XenForo database transaction completes.
  • Real-time index update API request length is capped so forum visitors don't experience delays when saving changes.
  • Corrects an error message sent to Threadloom when the plug-in cannot properly encode data.

2.0.7 – released 2017-06-08

Efficiency improvements for scheduled task data transfers

  • Handle rare cases where size of posts exceeds HTTP transfer limits.
  • Reduced size of data sent by server during scheduled task run. Results in faster task runtime.
  • Fixed an internal bug in how we query number of rows in tables during the scheduled task run.

Full release notes
Threadloom now supports XenForo thread prefixes. Thread prefixes are a great way to help users quickly identify what category a post belongs to.
  • Thread prefixes now show up in search results.
  • You can also filter search results by prefix, simply by typing [prefix:myprefix] before your search term.
You can also stack prefixes with other advanced search operators. This works across all versions of the plugin - no upgrade required. Enjoy!
