Search box

Postby Norm » Wed Apr 21, 2010 12:08 pm

As these forums become a resource of more and more useful information, the search facility is getting more important. I'm not sure if it's a bug or not, but I've found the search box at the top right of this page pretty much useless. It either tells me that there needs to be more words (try "speedo"), more words and letters ("speedo px") or just too common ("punjabi kit").

An alternative until this is fixed (hopefully) is to use Google's site-specific search. So for example, if you want to use Google to just search this site, type this into Google's search box:
site:www.lmlocgb.co.uk followed by a space and what you want to search for.

For example, typing into Google "site:www.lmlocgb.co.uk speedo" (no quote marks) gives this result:
http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&q=site:w ... 2efd5164f5

Sorry if I'm teaching Grandma to suck eggs (yuk!)...

EDIT: one caveat worth mentioning is that you'll be relying on Google's "crawling" of the site to provide the search results. Whilst this happens regularly, it's not instantaneous, so posts made in the last few hours (or even possibly days) won't necessarily show up in the search results.
