I know about the "advanced mode", 'Becca

Take the option to "save your search preferences", for instance - a beautiful option which makes it understandable why you wouldn't want to see all those so-called "advanced" options every time... but IT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING. (Not for me, anyway.) So now you always have to open "advanced mode" first before you can check the "search by post" (which is a step more than before, and no gain in sight)... and if you forget that (or you made another little mistake) you have to wait for two whole slow minutes (used to be one... and that was long!) before you can correct your mistake... it's aaarghhh!
And why only 150 results
? You can choose between so many time-frames, but it's absolutely useless
, since you'll never get more than 150 results anyway... and that really is not much. Say you search for posts from a year ago, you'll still
only get the same boring last 150 posts. Enraging!
Look - if the search-function isn't used much, it won't matter if it's fully functional and stays so all the time.
If it IS used much, however - as I suppose it must be: why else disabling it at the peak moments? - diminishing it's usefulness and disabling it when most needed (at those peak moments, of course) changes it only into a source of continuous frustration. Better not to have a search function at all then: this is like unreachable temptation...
Please, dear webmasters and -mistresses, please
