has anyone tried the search plugin(s) that I made?
i would have expected at least one or two people to try and not be able to figure out how to get it working...
i did make a second one for the V2 sub-forum that someone requested... i don't really use it much so i'm not sure if it really works... if you try it out and it seems to work i might make one for you for the V1 sub-forum.
but i find it better to search the whole forum ... but that's just me
thanks for the feedback
I just used CancerJCC's search method w/ Google and it works great. I had a question about cleaning and oiling my Volant CAI - the threads I found were very old (would probably never have found them just browsing), but they answered my questions perfectly.
the search plugin i created does that extra 'site:cadillacforums.com' for you automatically if you find yourself typing that out a lot give my search plugin a try
(In Google search bar type this and then bookmark it)

a code tag might help you out there a bit so the text is copy-able
I used to use this all the time for craigslist...good tip.
maybe if the administrator revamped the search engine with these suggestions then maybe it would help solve the issues with the site search>>??
just a thought......
FYI: The Google "site-specific" search seems to be broken. Their documentation suggests that it still works, but I haven't had any luck. All my tries result in "Your search... ...did not match any documents."
I even tried links that others posted in this thread and no luck... I haven't ruled out that I'm doing it wrong, but wanted to share.
For example, I was trying to find out info on K&N topics specifically in the CTS-V V1 forum, and the following search yielded no results:
I just used this search to locate a post from 2006, the forum search only goes back a couple of years.
Thanks for the tip...
