I'm making a new thread because I'm apparently locked out of searching?

I hope I didn't overload the servers with my 3 searches.

Thanks for the tip CJ.

I was just baffled after trying to search for one of my posts and being 'locked' out of it after 3 attempts. I don't really understand that one. . . . . . .

if you are looking for one of your own posts you might have better luck clicking on 'my posts' at the top of the page. if it is a really old one it might take some paging back, though, to find it.

Some, myself included, would say searching through a search function would be much easier than hunting and pecking through hundreds of posts.

EDIT: I specified I 'made a new thread' because I know there are other "search function" threads, but I didn't want to hunt and peck through this sub-forum, and my search was locked, so new thread it was.

Johnny,

Could you upload a screen shot so we can see how the search stuff went wonky for you?

It lets me do three searches, then locks it out. I found out I can shut down the browser, open a new one, and start again after. Not sure how long it wants me to wait...

Try adding an exception for permies to Ghostery.

I've been using the Google search at the bottom of the search page clicking on search permies.com instead of web.

I popped a note in to the staff at coderanch about this. I suggested that if a user has more than 30 posts then the timer can be reduced.

google search works very...

I tend to search "permies keyword" and it usually spits out the post I'm after right at the top.

I've also used it to find my own posts by typing "permies michael cox keyword"

or for that matter pretty much any other combination of search you might want.

Thanks Paul.

I actually don't mind the Permies search function, so that's why I'd like to see it improved.
I end up misspelling or mis-remembering what keyword I need to use and sometimes need more than 3 attempts. I misspelled my own name in one of those attempts that even got me to make this thread.

Jaikiran, from the CodeRanch staff, took a look and said that folks are limited to three searches per minute. He made it so folks with lots of posts are limited to 6 searches per minute. That might help.

Thanks, Paul.
