I'm using IE 6 and have browser events coupled to sounds (for instance, certain links i click on produce a "click" sound from my speakers). Many times when I click the Today's Posts link, I get TWO distinct click sounds which means either i physically clicked the link twice (which I'm sure is NOT the case 99% of the time) or the code behind the page/link has interpreted my single click as two clicks. This in turn is causing the search engine to determine that i have performed two searches within a 30-second period, hence the search error message.
In simpler terms, Basenotes thinks you hit the Today's Posts link twice even though you most likely did not.
I haven't tried using firefox to see if i get the same results because this was not happening with IE6 before the latest noticeable upgrade/speed-increase so I'm POSITIVE it's a problem with the link/page.
I would have eventually complained about this but I thought i would give it a chance to get worked out since Grant is still doing additional work on the site.
Workaround 1 (for IE6 - will be similar for other browsers): Click on the Quick Links menu, right-click on the Today's Posts link to get a browser pop-up context menu, select Copy shortcut (copies http://community.basenotes.net/search.php?do=getdaily to your clipboard memory), then paste the copied URL to your browser address box and hit Enter or Go.
Workaround 2: Create a shortcut on your desktop or a bookmark of this URL: http://community.basenotes.net/search.php?do=getdaily Then just click on it instead of the Today's Post link to query recent (today's) posts.
