    Re: How to Search Quickly and Efficiently.

    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 for a short time. The problem I found was it was searching the entire site vice the 04-07 V sections. Then I guess I just gave up on it when I switched over to Chrome again...

    Re: How to Search Quickly and Efficiently.

    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

    Re: How to Search Quickly and Efficiently.

    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

    Glad it worked for you. I actually now have a Chrome tab bookmarked that goes straight to Google and I only have to add what I want to fine in front. It is what Andringa said on the first page and I find it works quite nicely.

    (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

    Re: How to Search Quickly and Efficiently.

    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......

    That's more of a suggestion for the vBulletin team than this site's administrator(s)

    Re: How to Search Quickly and Efficiently.

    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:

    K&N site:http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...es-forum-2004/

    Any ideas?

    Thumbs up Re: How to Search Quickly and Efficiently.

    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...
