    Does this affect any addons which wouldn't work because elasticsearch is enabled? Has anyone hit this problem yet?

    Enhanced Search is a replacement for MySQL search, add-ons should be unaffected.

    The only one which needs anything doing to work with is XenTag, and you need to edit one of the files to make it work (instructions are in the add-on)

    Can someone plese explain to me, in layman terms, what Elastic Search is?

    Would I be able to use it if my XF forum is behind a firewall?

    And what if all of Nodes are marked as private, can it be configured to index them?

    Thank you.

    On Edit: And can someone point me to an example where I can test it.

    It's installed here so you can test it on this site.

    The specific configuration of your forum has no impact on it.

    The FAQ in my signature has some information related to it and how it differs from MySQL search.

    Here's what I found at your FAQ. Is this the major diff?

    More or less.

    Also, typically MySQL search is only good for forums with less than 1 million posts.

    Enhanced Search also offers relevancy-based ordering (including an option to weight more recent content higher).

    Does that mean we can make certain content types rate higher than others? Or is the weighting limited to just post/thread content types? Possible to see the configuration options in the xenforo ACP?

    Still using MySQL search myself, searching for a very common keyword takes 7 seconds searching through 990,000 posts. I'm sure ES would at least half that loading time.

    Edit: Just tried another equally common keyword, 4 seconds this time. I'm fine with this for now.

    I was referring to date-based weighting:

    There isn't content-type based weighting by default.
