It seems that whenever I try to use the search facility I end up with a message telling me I'm not allowed to use it (can't remember exact wording). Is there any way around this as I have often wanted to look back at old posts but can't find what I'm looking for without a very long trawl through all the posts in each section.

It probably tells you that you cannot use search right now, nothing personal.

You can just take a few breaths and keep refreshing the page until it is ready.

Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes.

It was set at 30 seconds, I have now set it to wait only 15 seconds between searches, this stops search engines and bots from hogging all the database resources by constantly searching (slowing the forum down)

Thanks. I'll give it a try later - when I remember what it was I was searching for.
