Google search

Body

Hi Sarah,

is there any way a google site search button could be added to the interface? The existing search seems to miss a lot of results.
Many thanks!

Garcia, Meanwhile, if you type 'google' into the search box with the term you're looking for, does that have any effect?

Or just go to Google and ask, then see what difference there is.

As I said in my previous reply, go over to google to search: after all, that is what it is there for. This is a rather fragile site and since the search box works, I don't want to mess with it.

Sorry I thought you were asking me for further information in your original reply.
In any case I have fixed the issue for myself by installing a firefox extension. Though it won't help anyone relying on the searchbox.

Interesting, Garcia. Thanks for the insight. I wonder why our search isn't picking up those others. I'll experiment a little tonight.

But Garcia, nobody needs to rely on the search-box if they don't think it good enough they can just open another window and use google, typing in 'site:cpnhelp:org glisodin' or whatever else. Then you can find everything from cpnhelp without overburdening the server.
