    I'm about to buy XF (finally!) but don't know if I need enhanced search yet.

    Do I? :)

    It's a brand new forum attached to a blog with moderate traffic. Can I add it later? Is it more to add later?

    Also, would Google Custom Search be better?

    Thanks!

    Ken

    Enhanced search is above 1 Million Posts. You can add it later.

    That said, enhanced search provides extra functionality/performance even for smaller boards and I know several forums with under 100k posts using it.

    We're planning on introducing it at some point, we're at 35K posts and we think it's going to be very useful.

    I have around 100 000 posts on a shared hoster and feel no need for enhanced search. :)
    everything is running very well

    It's not about reducing load for us, it's the increased result accuracy, unlimited characters and a bunch of little things. Plus we've had a number of people complain about our search even though they love the site.

    Although our load is incredibly high for a site of size which is annoying.

    I'll probably not get it off the bat and include it bit later when my forum gets some traction.
