If forum search is not working please note that on main mudcat page lest folks think that there are no results.

Additionally possibly add a line about how to search mudcat via google

And as long as the Old Advanced Forum Search remains the most important search tool, it would be nice if it didn't take 3 clicks to get to it.

Well, the best search tool is the Filter, which is smack dab center of the Forum Menu page.
But your suggestion is a good one, Conrad, since we have had perennial problems with our main search engine.
Maybe a link to our FAQ Search Hints from the FAQ would be a good thing to put on the "Search Results" page.

I am enjoying searching via the google method site: etc.Perhaps a form could be designed to pre format this and send it direct to google.
IN the old times of yore I could probably have done this in a minute or so.
I think you already have a google search form it would just say search the Mundcat via google. Come to think of it doesnt google provide these sort of things to paste into the html.

Hi, Conrad -
We figured the Google Custom Search in the search box, would be sufficient - it's right there on almost every Mudcat page, but I think some people haven't found it yet. Many haven't figured out the Filter, either. If you put too much on a Web page, it gets "busy" and nobody can find anything.

i searched for "bird" and "bird watch" because i wanted to add a message about an eagle nest camera, but no results were found in
the forum, so i started a new thread. i would have rather had it go together with other bird info that has been posted...

there were lots of bird songs found in the DT, but nothing in the forum
