    Forum Search Function

    Just wondering when they changed the search function on this forum to "Google Forum Search"? I could have swore this button use to look like the rest of the buttons across the top. It use to search within the forum and return a list of relevant topics. It didn't take you back to the internet into a Google site only to have to click on the link and come back in. What Happened

    Re: Forum Search Function

    There have always been two search functions, the "native" search and Google search. We simply switched their places, so the "native" search in now in the far bottom left of each page, and Google search, which used to be in the bottom left is now on the title bar.

    We did this partly because Google search generally returns much more useful results, and partly because too much use of the native search was overloading the server.

    Thanks Jason I never would have looked that far down on the page.
