Forum Search is Unusable

    Can you please remove the member list from the search feature on this forum? It fills up with so many names that it causes any browser to hang up.

    Thanks for your feedback. I altered the code so that only the "all members" option works, preventing all of the user names from filling up the drop-down box.

    That's a good decision. I've used the forum search frequently in the last weeks and it was really annoying to wait till that combo box was filled.

    Also, when you search make use of google

    "Your search String"+www.sql-server-performance.com

    Will give you clear topics

    But sometimes i even search by member name
    Brad, can you list top 100 members order by post desc
    in that combo box.
    for eg: sometimes i search for a particular post where satya or someone else has replied.

    A workaround would be to include "satya" or the name of the mamber in the search words.

    As I said, google will match it but not Forum search.
    Ranjit, try googling

    "Your search string"+sql-server-performance.com+Satya

    You are better chance of getting proper topics

    Ranjitjain, I think if you add "sayta" as part of the search words, you would get the results you would expect.

    Somehow I miss this discusion, but the member list was very usefull to me.
    Using google is not the same.

    Recently I read a Joe post with the word "qdpma".

    If you search with google qdpma+sql-server-performance.com+JoeChang you will find 1 post.

    If you search disk+sql-server-performance.com+JoeChang you will find 1 post only.
    Now, Joe only wrote disk in only 1 post?

    I never had a problem with member list. I use to type the first letter of the name and that is allmost all.

    I don't know what to do, it seems that either way, there is a problem.

    Why dont you make it a text input column instead of a Combo box?

    But its more easy (as we don't know the name of all users) to have a combo box.

    Dusting out old thread rather than posting a new one!

    I get the error when trying to search for similar posts in forum:

    Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e31'

    Timeout expired

    /forum/search.asp, line 349

    I believe another one for Jude to tackle once back from Hols.

    Would suspect this to be on hold, since the forum software is going to be replaced anyway.

And sometimes one rememer only name of the initiater and not the topic title now in this case the combo box for names are more helpfull isn't it ?<br /><br />Regards<br /><br />Hemantgiri S.
