[SOLVED] Search cooldown time

Any chance of getting this time reduced/removed for logged-in users?

At least 30 seconds have to pass between searches.

+1
I'd ask for it to be removed for logged in users.
If (for whatever motive) it cannot be removed, at least reduced to 10s.

Best,

Re: [SOLVED] Search cooldown time

What is this about?

I'm not aware of any "cooldown time between searches" here?

I see it if I'm not logged in. Do a search, try to do another search immediately and it says I have to wait 30 seconds. When I'm logged in, there is no delay for the second search.

Note: I poked around the admin section looking for that setting, but I couldn't find it.

That is because the system knows you have admin rights and as such, you not subject to the time restraint.
But for the rest of us, the 30s timer is always on, logged in or not.

@fsmithred; via a crumbs gathering detour through the amazing code base I found "search flood interval" as a setting for groups. Go for it smile

Sorry, I was wrongly assuming it was a commonly known about thing.

It's a feature forum software has for preventing excess server load - on busy forums, complex searching has potential to slow things down, so there's usually a configurable time-limit. I'm pretty certain the 30 seconds here is an over-conservative default of FluxBB.

If I was tasked with setting a value for an unknown/arbitrary forum, in the absence of any data to say otherwise, I'd probably start with 0-3 seconds for registered users, maybe 10-15 seconds for guests, and adjust accordingly if server monitoring suggested searches were causing excess slowdown.

Re: [SOLVED] Search cooldown time

Any chance of reducing the 60 second timeout for new posts? It might just be my sporadic hypomania but I butt up against this limitation more than I would like and I find the wait quite excruciating sometimes. I understand if it won't be possible though, it does help prevent spam.

Re: [SOLVED] Search cooldown time

Well after a week I think I've only hit the new limit on a couple of occasions - both times it was with 2 seconds remaining.

Definitely an improvement on before, when it felt I was constantly hitting the previous limit, and had to wait for ages before reloading.

Thanks.

Are you referring to being logged out in the time it takes you to type a post (or a reply), click Submit, only to get "you have no permission", because you've been logged out in the meantime? I have had this twice now. Fortunately I had the forum open in two tabs, and a login in the other tab made it possible to do a reload on the error page, and resending the request. Otherwise, a lot of typing would have been lost. You might be able to use this workaround.

I think it would be nice if I could _remain_ logged in until I choose not to be. Or alternatively, if submitting a post or reply, I would get an error page offering me to provide login credentials and try submitting the post or reply again, so the text is not lost.
