Not exactly a suggestion (well, not at all), but couldn't see anywhere more appropriate to put this.

The search function doesn't always work, more specifically wen selecting the subsequent search page results when what you are looking for isn't on page 1.

Does anyone else have this, or is it something to do with my end of things?

Yep i get this almost all the time

Sometimes if you wait a little while, then click for the 2nd page, it works, but thats not ideal i know

Defo a bit of a pain

I searched for the word "panda" (was going to show my m8 pcs of Peo's white coupe), the first page returns results but I get an error message when trying to click on page 2. :(

And just as an example, i used the 2 words 'big brakes'
Ive done it many times, all different sorts of words (to do with cars obviously)

Up comes the results, went straight to page 2 and this came up

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

There is a 60 second limit between consecutive searches by individual users.
The search function is set to go offline if the system load is over a preset limit. This is to prevent the boards stalling.

So I have to wait for 60 secs before clicking onto page 2............

Tried clicking the link for page one, all was fine, the clicked a link for page 2 and got the same error until I waited and then it came up after a few tries.

You shouldn't need to wait, and indeed I didn't when testing using your search term 'panda'
The 60 second limit is between one search and the next. Clicking on page 2 is just bringing up more of the results already found.

There is something definatley wrong with the search on this site.

I just searched the term "Managing Director" I got two pages of options.When i clicked to look at the second page a mesage popped up You cannot search so soon..................or words to that effect.
Also noticed that in the search function if a subject is looked at and the info wanted is not there you cannot go back to where you were you have to start search again!

Just tried again.Cannot search "Managing director" and click page 2 straight away!

DOH.................Keep up.

If what you want is not on the first page then you cannot find it.

It's not site related - must be peoples browsers or something else. ;-)

Tried exactly the same search Andy - moved from page 1 to page to page 3 with no problems. ;-)

Search works fine for me.
