When I click on Search (on the left side menu bar) the system just keeps grinding away. Eventually I get the message that the script is taking too long. I get the same result on both my Windows 7 machine and my XP machine. I'm running IE 8. This just started happening today (7/29/2011). Yesterday was fine.
I think this goes back to a search I did that brought back a lot of records. Ever since then the system thinks this is the default search, and when I click on the search link it goes back into brining back all the records. This time I just kept waiting it out and clicking yes to continue the search. The results finally came back. I did a new seach to something that I knew would bring back a normal number of records. Now all is fine.
BTW - I had already tried all your suggestions, but I was getting the same problem. Maybe there's something you can do to better handle large searches.
I really like Toodledo. I've been using it for several years. I needed something that was low cost, web based, yet with enough features to make it useful. Toodledo was (and I think still is) the ideal fit for me.
Actually the connection is pretty fast, and I don't think it was thousands, but it was a lot. The problem is that once you realize that the search is bringing back too much, there doesn’t appear to be a way of clearing it from the system's assumption that you want that big search to appear when clicking the search link. I just had to wait it out.
What if you had another link in the “View BY:” menu that would force a new search? Someone could use this to reestablish a reasonable search as the “last search,” or just a quick way to do a new search.
