Searching Forum Archives?
« on: September 11, 2014, 02:46:03 AM »
Has anyone figured out an effective way of searching the boards.cityofheroes.com forum rather than just clicking through each page on archive.org?

You could always download the raw archive file, unfriendly as it is.

I don't recall hearing if anyone has hosted a searchable copy of it, though.

yeah, I was aware of that archive, but I appreciate the pointer -- I've actually been using it to go through the hosted archive manually, but was curious about any efforts that went into an effective search mechanism.  Apparently archive.org is still working on full text search capabilities too....

Yeah, I've been having to go through it manually too.

The good news is that by reading my own posts, I'm becoming aware of how good I used to be a builds... and how much I stink it em now.  :o
