Search is load limited. When the boards are busy, it automatically shuts off to help improve the speed of the boards. Try searching early in the morning, later at night or on weekends. Those seem to be the slower times.

Unhappy

OK, I've tried searching at 5:30 AM EST this morning and I'm still getting the >Sorry. The search function has been disabled by the administrator. < message...

Is there a problem with the site or is there something wrong with my account???

Thanks!

I agree with Susie Bee on this one. I hardly ever seem to find a time where the search function is working. VERY rarely have I been able to utilize this function at all, but especially on the "Theme Park Attractions and Strategies" board. This is VERY frustrating....especially since my dialup connection is SO SO slow. It takes forever to load each page of a board just to see if my questions have been asked and answered in the past. It has taken up to ONE FULL HOUR for me to go through only 8-10 pages just to see if there is any info out there that covers my topic. It makes me just want to scream sometimes!!!! My blood pressure doesn't need this frustration, so I'll probably just post no matter what....even if the topic was covered on the page before. I just don't have the time to sort through all those pages at 26400 bps!

Diane,

Have you noticed any of the posts about new servers on the way for the DIS?

These servers will be much bigger, better, faster, and able to handle the ever growing number of members posting all this great information here! We anticipate that we'll be able to search once again after everything gets moved over... (We're ALL looking forward to this!)

I don't have dates, but keep watching the boards for the happy announcement!

KathyTX,

Thanks for the headsup! Truth is that while I have glanced at, but not thoroughly read, the posts about new servers, I hadn't actually taken the time to consider that this would have an effect on the search function. Not because it doesn't make sense, mind you, but because I'm simply ignorant about such things. I too will begin to look forward to the completion of the changes. This IS exciting!

PS--Sorry I sounded so frustrated in my earlier post, but truth is, I REALLY had run out of patience at that very moment. I was frustrated and loud, which is usually not a good combo--sorry 'bout that.

No problem, Diane.

Truth is, I say some ugly things about and to the computers pretty often, too. :D

Has anyone had any luck doing searches? I can never get it to work which is very frustrating since it takes a while to get to the message that says it won't work. If anyone has any advice, I'd appreciate it!

Searching for User Name

Is there a trick to finding msgs by a user who has an apostrophe in the name? I can't search for my posts. Don't have many, but I can find other users that have two words in the name. Search function seems to dislike the apostrophe. Do I need to change my name and remove the apostrophe?

Thanks

Hi Sorcerer's Dad. The search has not really worked since late last summer. I do not think it is the apostrophe, search pretty much is just generally non-functional. You might try digging through this thread, there might be some search work arounds you can pull from it......

I did read back a month and a half or so ago that they were working on it.

Some DIS'ers have luck doing a Google site-search.

I agree with Dan - the website-based search seems to be fairly non-functional these days. (Btw Sorceror's Dad - I can't find myself either.) I am still hopeful that the new/improved dedicated Search-Server that WebmasterAlex spoke of back in March is happening soon.

And then we can all find ourselves .

Thank you for your replies.

Dan - I do find your msgs using advanced search. The messages to agnes! are hiding in the same bucket of trons as mine.

agnes! -- I'll mark the link in your msg and check that periodically.

I can not do searches either. I used to be able to but I do not even get a "sorry" anymore. I type in a key word and it just defaults back. I have done this at 5PM and at 3AM and I still can not search.

Question CANNOT search on username

I cannot search under username -

like I used to beable to click on a username next to their avatar -
You are given the choice - pick all posts by 'USERNAME'

Whenever I do this now I get...
Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

I just changed my 'STYLE' to california gold - and now I can search....weird.
