    vBulletin Message
    This forum requires that you wait 30 seconds between searches. Please try again in 30 seconds.


    For at least the last two weeks I get this message when I simply go from the Community Board to 'Today's Posts' under the Quick Links Menu. This never happened before
    When the server is busy (in the European afternoon), it is not unusual that by the time the 30 seconds have passed and I try again, I get the same message over and over again.

    Am I the only one with problems?

    No. I've been getting it since the board's noticeable speed increase.

    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.

    I don't have this problem with Firefox 2 or 3. It would be annoying. I hate waiting 30 seconds between checking "New Posts" and doing a search for something else. Some frag/description will be mentioned in a post and, naturally, I need to see what the reviews say. Alas, 30 seconds must be spent on other fora until my needs can be met.

    But I understand why it's done and am absolutely happy with it. The little kid in me does have the occasional tantrum, though.

    MadScientist, you are a genius!!

    Workaround 2 is working splendid and the computer is now safe for my impatient outbursts. Thank you very much for your help.

    I'm not so positive any more. Like Hoos, I can't duplicate the problem in Firefox 2.0.0.11.
