As a newbie on the egg I have been searching these forums a lot, as a web developer for a career I was yearning to use google to search instead of the default forum search engine. Luckily I can do that:

Is a custom search engine that will display only results for this forum. I found it useful so wanted to post it in case others do as well.

    Re: the new forum search...

    Google custom search engines can actually be embedded into the forum directly instead of being on a separate page. What I mean is that the "search forum" textbox above could easily do the kind of google search on the webpage I posted, all hosted within the forums pages.

    I am not sure who controls the forum software, but linking the "search forum" box to a google custom search engine would not be a super-hard thing to do (I think, it depends on the forum software of course). I am a web developer by trade so if the forum owners need any help with this kind of stuff, I am happy to do what I can.

    Glad it is helpful to people!

    Do you have this searching the subject line or in the body of the posts. I just did a few quick searches and it seems the google hit responds to the "In Reply to: ~then the search criteria~"

    It will be interesting to play around with this a little.

    Again, thanks.
