If 68kMLA is on the list, might want to add tinkerdifferent.com too.

That's another Xenforo site. I'll need to figure out why those aren't crawling properly, first.

tinkerdifferent.com seems to

tinkerdifferent.com seems to be working. I have it crawling now. I think the difference between it and VCFed and 68kmla is that it uses clean URLs. I'm going to take a closer look at the latter two now.

Edit: scratch that, tinkerdifferent.com isn't working. I'll look at it some more. And if anybody else is interested in playing with this, I have a test engine set up for that purpose that you can have access to.

Edit 2: tinkerdifferent is done.

For the Xenforo sites that

For the Xenforo sites that don't use clean URLs, a /= is getting appended to URLs, like this:

https://forum.vcfed.org/index.php?threads/how-do-you-remove-a-ps-2-55sx-microchannel-slot-cover.1248201/=

I'm not sure why that's happening, but it causes the crawler to load the main index rather than the specific thread page.

Site index

Will the index used by the search tool on this site ("Search this site") be updated as well?

It doesn't return any results newer than 2020.
