      Use the Google search that we implemented - gives better results and more relevant ones

      We need the delay because so many people search at any one time, especially guests, it was originally set at 30 seconds, but we compromised and dropped it down.

      Re: 15sec search rule!

      We really do need the delay as it draws so many queries from the database or so I am told.

      Leave it with me and I will see whether we can do something thats better

      I think 15 seconds is about right, most sites that run software like this will have a similar setting.

      Re: 15sec search rule!

      The default setting is 30 seconds, and tbh we do need it on here, because of the amount of people searching for answers.

      I have looked into changing it for members, but the only way to do it is for everyone

      Too low will mean so many requests on the DB and might give users DB timeout errors, The new google search is fine if you ask me!
