I have a million post forum on a dedicated server. What are the benefits of purchasing this extension. Is there a comparison guide between it and the regular search function. Thanks

ES will...

  • Keep your database much smaller
  • Therefore keep your backups much smaller (and therefore the time needed to do the backups)
  • Will relieve your database from the burden of searches (and therefore better general performance)
  • Provide your users with a better search including stemming and search for short words and abbreviations, much needed on technical (search for e.g. "SQL") and consumer forums (search for e.g. "BMW")
