Can you retroactively index forums?

Nothing has popped up yet for https://discord.gg/modular on the questions channel: https://www.answeroverflow.com/c/1087530497313357884. Is there a way to index historical messages from users who haven't consented yet? If they make a new post, or answer a question, will their posts be retroactively indexed?
Solution:
You can also use /server-settings and "Consider all messages public" if you want to have all messages show up - I need to update our docs / onboarding to cover that that's an option as well

It only indexes messages of users who have consented. But if a user consents, their previous messages should be indexed

^ This is right, although technically all messages are indexed, it just starts to display them after a user consents You should see content show up within ~24 hours - it starts at the beginning of your channel so gathering all of the threads takes a bit of time - If you want to test that it's working any questions that are marked as solved get indexed immediately as well
