Real time search update crashed again
When I add a new title to Open Library, it does not automatically get added to the search index. Users cannot find the titles they have just added. The ability to add titles is one of the great features of Open Library, but this feature is effectively unusable at present.
I have discussed this with Aaron and Paul. Paul has explained that a background process is supposed to monitor manual updates to add them to the index. The process is often not running. I have yet to successfully add a title and have it available to search.
IMHO, titles should always be available to search immediately after they have been added. I can't imagine users would be interested in adding titles if that is not the case. Is is possible to automatically add titles to the search index as soon as the user adds them?
