    Posted: 12 June 2008 at 7:48am
Hi, I'm having trouble searching the forum. Everytime I put in some search terms/words it fails to bring anything, it comes up with: "One or more of your search criteria is below 3 characters" when it is more than three words. And If I put in the exact title of a thread it comes up that the search failed. Confused

Hi Angel
 
To search word on title/topic/subject use the following option will help:
- use "Match phrase" (not "match all word")
- Search In: "topic subject" (not "message body")
- Find Post: If you know the time frame, use the narower time span (last 6 month will be better/faster than 1 year)

Hello want2know,

I guess you probably posted a couple of posts/messages one after the other within a span of few minutes - and a message appeared saying

"..etc....and spamming is not allowed"

Don't worry about it, its an automatic message that appears if we post too many posts in a short span of time. It is to prevent people from spamming i.e. flooding threads with adverts or unnecessary/irrelevant messages. Just wait a few minutes before posting another message and you will not get that message. Used to happen with me in the beginning too.

So don't worry, you didn't offend anyone Smile

"O Lord, forgive me, my parents and Muslims in the Hereafter. O Lord, show mercy on them as they showed mercy to me when I was young."
