    Default Search index is not being generated, leading to various search failures.

    Under "My Profile" when I click "Find Latest Posts" the most recent result is from January of 2019, but I have made many posts since then that should be included.

    When I click another user's name and select "View Forum Posts" I get the same failure, with posts only up to January 2019 shown.

    When I construct a search using Advanced Search / Search Single Content Type / Find Latest Posts By User, I get the same failure.

    I have been unable to use Advanced Search in any way to find any results newer than January 2019.

    Some googling tells me these searches depend on pre-built indexes, so I conclude the index is no longer being rebuilt, making the search function useless.

    My use case in this instance is searching for a recent post made by a certain user in a certain forum, which makes the google search useless because it doesn't let me limit results in any useful way for this purpose, or even sort them by date.

    Would you please fix these problems?

    Could someone confirm that this bug report has been received? Or if this is not the right place for it, let me know where is?

    Hi Chris. I'll try to elevate it from the Moderator forum to the Admin people. They are supposed to be monitoring this thread though/

    Yeah, it was about a year-and-a-half ago that I noticed it, too. I just learned to work around it.
    If the post you need isn't too old, you can go right now and look at the PROFILE of the member in question, and check out his MEMBER'S ACTIVITY PAGE to view recent posts, although I don't know off-hand how far back you can research.

    Thanks, I did try that. In this case it's an infrequent poster and that doesn't go back far enough.

    Okay- I'll work alongside Mike in getting this thing sorted out, somehow. Maybe. I think...

    Hi Kevin and Bill,

    Thanks for your efforts so far. This is still not working for me.
