Search will only work every so often, sometimes i get a blank screen, and when i go to refresh it it tells me i must wait in between searches.
Any input on this problem?

Are you using the search at the bottom of the page?

The search function at the bottom of the page is much better. If you really need to search for something, go to the bottom of the page.

I want to narrow it down a bit, like doing a search in a particular section.

Use very specific keywords and you should find what you
are looking for via the search feature at the bottom
of the page.

I always use the search in the menu bar, and find it works perfectly well. You can use that to search within specific sections, and you can also search within threads.

The white screen happens to me also, BUT only when using overly common words that are mentioned in almost every thread, like oil (e.g. fork oil). I've only tried the search in the menu bar though. I'll have to try the lower one mentioned.

Never had a white screen of death. I just scrolled down to the bottom, typed in the word 'oil' and searched. Received the normal list of hits: Results 1 - 10 of about 9,930 from xlforum.net for oil with Safesearch on. (0.30 seconds)

:dunno

'oil' worked for me as well now - got the white screen when searching for 'fork oil' using the top menu search though. I'll just start using the bottom search if doesn't work with the menu search - I rarely get the white screen anyways so that's a good :D
