Where's The Google Search!?!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Seems like something has changed with the format on the forum -- there used to be a Google search field and now I can't find it anywhere! All I can find is a small search box at the top right. Anytime I search for ANYTHING in that field -- nothing ever comes up. Always comes back "no results". Please help! Seems like I remember the Google search box being on the left maybe down about a 1/4 page??

The Google search is not available directly from the forum pages.

Check that you are using the correct scope with the search. It is sensitive to where it is launched from. If you are in a topic, it will by default search only that topic. If in a forum index, by default only that forum will be searched. You can change the scope with the pull-down menu in the right side of the window.

To the right of the window is an icon that looks a bit like a gear. Click it to access advanced search options, which include using Google to search.

Thank you. Is that a recent change? The Google search used to always be there whenever I first would pull up the forum? Now it seems I have to take extra steps to get there.

Upgrades to the board in January improved the built-in search function.

It takes exactly one extra click to get to Google if you prefer that search.

Is the non-google search still available? The only search I see is "search forum via google", and that doesn't have options like the other. What am I missing?

I think the google works much better for the forum. Just my opinion.

Under the Google search there are little letters that say" Advanced Search".
