Lack of interest Make option for number of days to store xf_search data


Well-known member
I created an add-on called Search Log:

It works by getting information from the xf_search table. Currently this table is pruned every 24 hours and all data older than 24 hours is removed.

It would be great if there was a setting in the Admin CP that allowed us to change how frequently the table is pruned. That way my Search Log add-on could should a few days or weeks worth of searches as opposed to just 24 hours.

Thank you.

The data stored within xf_search is intended to be a cache for accessing search results (which I believe are invalidated after 24 hours); not an exhaustive history.
