Search Function

Recommended Posts

I use the search function a lot, and find it very useful for tracking down that elusive post I read in the past or finding posts on a certain subject.

Successive searches are limited to be 25 seconds (I think) apart, o.k. no problem. I would think this alleviates multiple search requests in a very short period of time from users that could ultimately slow things down? Like I said not a big deal.

My question is, after the search is completed, the results are organised by relevancy first (default), but I want to see the most recent post. So when sorting by "date" in the drop down menu, it considers this another search and implements another time limit on the sort, even though the search has already been completed. Is another search actually taking place in the database? or are the results merely just being shuffled to display the last post by date.

If there is an option to select a default, I'm not aware. Checking within "more search options" did not seem to have a section to organise all posts by date.

Would the team consider removing the 25 second wait to simply sort your search results?

Thanks,

Regards, 

James

The default is 30 seconds as a lot of searches at one time can cause a heavy load on our servers.  I reduced it to 15 seconds.  Let's see how that works.

Thanks very much Jim, I certainly appreciate your cooperation.

The reduced timing certainly does make a difference.

Just so we're on the same flight path, it's really only the "sort" function in the drop down list on the right hand side I was curious about. I assume now that they are both linked and one can't be changed independently from the other. Hope this doesn't cause any issues on your end. Keep up the great work!

Best,

James
