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!
