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
