Searching Users Posts

Postby Mayfly » Thu Feb 26, 2009 1:13 pm

Wedgy I'm sure you have mentioned this before but I cant find any reference to it nor does anything show up under the search facility

Why does the forum 9 times out 10 tell me I 'can't search a users posts please try later', & if I do manage to open the first page I get the message on the second page? ~x(

Which button are you using MF? "New Posts"? The search box or the advanced search?

Ive never seen it, although I seem to remember SM saying once he had the same message as a one off.

Any extra info you could give (and even a screenshot) will help :)

Edit: This one?

Is that the search users post in someone's profile?

The only reason that message should come up is when you try and search more than once within 30 seconds (that includes the "View New Posts" at the top of the forums which uses the search functionality) - standard config to reduce server load.

Does this fit? Or do you think the problem is beyond the 30 second rule?

sorry I've amended the title to reflect 'users posts'

I think my problem is beyond the 30 sec rule as it often won't let me look at the first page of postings

i use the search function quite a bit - it's normally fine for me.

i have had the odd problem identical to Mayfly's - but i can't think it has anything to do with the 30 second rule. not sure when it occurs to be honest but will keep an eye out :D

I have disabled the 30 second rule ;)

So it must be that :D

Will have to put it back on at some point though :(
