Search feature permanently broken?

Postby basketcase0302 » Tue Mar 20, 2018 6:59 am

I've gotten the following prompt for over a year now when I try to search for an old thread here:

Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in 24 seconds.

The search feature was always a very useful tool used to help other folks here.
Any ideas on when it might begin working again guys? :roll:

I gave up on the forum search a long time ago, Jeff. I've been using Google search ever since and have been able to narrow down searches quite a bit. See here for some handy tips and tricks. viewtopic.php?t=78857

It's always done that to me. Except I'm not usually lucky enough to get away with just 24 seconds :o

Too much time Randy. :(
When you get my age time is a little more valuable, (than to have two or three google search windows open) to show or help a fellow Ford lover how most of us have accomplished something. Navigating the search feature here has forever changed the site, (by not being able to access the information in a timely manner).
Thank you anyway... :no: :rant:
Good luck guys! :doh:
