where was it covered, there is no sticky, there should be a sticky on the main forum ..

but if you need to search
go on google.com

saabcentral.com enter search item
ie.

saabcentral.com waterpump

you will get all waterpump results from saabcentral.com

you can utilize the - to remove keywords
-failure -guide
pages that contain failure or guide will not be included

WOW That seems pretty difficult and a lot to go thru just to search up something.

Why the sudden change to the search function? I thought it was fine the way it was...

Look this up in the lounge; It'll explain everything. It was bogging down the server.

The search function was just so much easier and less time consuming.

We'll pass the hat around for the server upgrade contributions later.

Kind of a shame it has been done, at least there are external alternatives. I'm certain some more heavily sponsored sites will be quietly tittering about his.

But I agree for the time being a 'search function currently disabled' sticky may help.

I came here because it had a search function.. bummer. What is more of a drag.. people posting 10,000 threads of things that have already been answered each month because they can't search.. or a 2 second search to avoid 10,000 new threads..

Not sure why the mods haven't added a direct link to the google page and put it somewhere on the website...google offers a site search, which works just fine for the forums.
