Search function

Recommended Posts

Are the timers on the search feature really necessary? As they are set up, the search on this site is almost useless, or at least frustratingly slow. Its really evident when a search returns multiple pages of results and you scroll down to click on the second page and instead get hit with a "please wait". You hit the back to go to the first page, and it resets the timer again. It just makes it hard to find content you know exists on the site.

It has been like that since I have been a member here! It’s annoying and I’m not sure if it’s still necessary? I always thought it was something older forums did. I just had a lot of trouble trying to find a thread about Planet Snoopy haha.

Yeah I'm looking for pics of when they replaced some of the rails on The Bat and theres 50 different ways I can phrase the search including using the Flight Deck name, so it's a real mess.

Searching uses a lot of server resources. It is set that way to not slow down the site. We will look to see if we can modify its current configuration.

Thank you for looking into it!

It was set to allow a search every 20 seconds; we changed it to instead allow logged in users to search every 2 seconds. If you're logged out, you still have to wait 20 seconds between searches.

Let me know if there are still any issues with the search function.

Thank you! It is much appreciated.

Yes, thank you! I don't do a ton of searching, but that 20-second limit was occasionally problematic.
