== Frequently Asked Questions ==
* **Q**: Do I need to get an account on indextank.com to use this plugin?
* **A**: Not really. The plugin can get an account for you, from your dashboard.
* **Q**: Is it FREE?
* **A**: Yes, until you get 100,000 posts it is. If you ever go over that limit (a lot of blogging!) you may have to upgrade.
* **Q**: Are there any knows issues with other plugins?
* **A**: Not really. This plugin calls `apply_filters('the_content', $post->post_content)`, so if there's a buggy filter you may see errors while indexing. If that happens, please let us know at **support (at) indextank (dot) com**
== Upgrade Notice ==
You'll get a message on your dashboard, in case you need to upgrade your index. In that case, you need to:
* Go to the 'Tools' -> 'Indextank Searching' menu on your dashboard
* Click the 'Reset Index!' button
* Your index will show as 'STARTING' .. wait a few seconds and go again to the 'Tools' -> 'Indextank Searching' menu on your dashboard. **DON'T HIT THE RELOAD BUTTION!**
* Once your index shows as 'RUNNING', hit the 'Index All posts!' button.
* Great, you're upgraded :)
