Slightly Better Search Method

Recommended Posts

We all know the search function built into this website can be a little clunky. Through some trial and error I discovered a search method that will direct you to the exact page of the thread where you can find the words you search for.

Here is a quick example:

I want to find posts that include the words "Steve Boltz"

Go to Google

Type "Steve Boltz site:www.lastsparrowtattoo.com/forum" into the search box and click search.

This might be helpful in discovering who was the first person to use the term "squid pants" on LST.

Hey guys,

I went ahead and implemented google search via the LST search box - so now we have site-wide search there that should match what you find in google.

I haven't tested extensively yet, so please let me know of any wonkyness.

enjoy

Maybe it's just me, but when I try the search box I end up with an empty white area where the search results should appear...

I'm using the latest Chrome on Mac.

Actually, sorry, it is just me. I keep forgetting that I'm using Ghostery to block unwanted trackers and stuff and it blocked the Google Search API in this case. I whitelisted it and it works like a treat now, thanks!

    • Hello! I am about to have my hand tatooed and would like to have it go on "top" on my current sleeve. I was thinking past the red flames that you see. I am wondering if it means my new tattoos needs to be solid black to go on top for it to cover up? Because I wouldn't want the flames to stick out of nowhere or have the lines from the bricks show up in the new one. It's my first time getting a tattoo on top of another one, so I just want to make sure! Thanks so much for your time!   Pictures
    • I got this one last week from Lukas Speich at XXX Tattoo in Lucerne, Switzerland. I stole the idea from a story that Yoni Zilber retold from Bill Salmon, in a Podcast... there was a dude who saw someone's tattoo and said, "That's a pretty cool tattoo. I got a tattoo also, but mine's a little cooler." He showed the tattoo and there it was... a little cooler. 😉😉  I chose the classic Igloo Playmate, but the wording was too small to tattoo. So, I asked Lukas to add a little Swiss flag and he went with a red cross. It's kinda funny to me, as it now looks like it could be used to transport an organ donation.
    • Yeah, it's crazy! Hope that you are healing better, too. My knee is crazy jacked up. I am sure that I will need a touch up eventually!
