    Search Feature

    Why doesn't search work (for me) any more?

    It tries for about 3 minutes, and then just gives me a "Page cannot be displayed" error.

    I'm surprised you have only recently had problems. I think I virtually gave up on it about a year ago. I believe the powers that be are aware it is rubbish but I don't know what they intend (if anything to do about it).

    BTW - if you want to raise this officially then you need to draw SoftWareRevue's attention to this - he won't typically look in Chat but he is alerted whenever anything appears in Suggestions and Feedback.

    It doesn't work for me either; times out before it ever retrieves anything. Then again, this site overall doesn't work very well for me at work but I'm sure that has more to do with the firewall than the site itself. At home it's fine.

    I've always had bad performance with searches on dbforums, no matter where I am logged in.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
