    I've installed Xenforo on my development site, to check everything, before we make the switch permanent. I've converted an IP.Board installation and when my staff are testing the site search, the search is coming up with no results.

    All the topics and posts have transferred with no problems but the search is not able to pick them up, only topics that have been created after the conversion.

    Can anyone suggest how to get it to work?

    Yeah you just need to rebuild the Search Index:

    Admin CP > Tools > Rebuild Caches > Search Index: All

    It's a very server intensive and lengthy process depending on how many items need to be indexed. So it's up to you whether or not you embark on it for a development site. You could for completeness, or you could just save some time and wait until you go live.
