what happened to the Google Search ?

It was better than the Forum Search

(but not as good as the "old forum" Google Search)

Need appliance parts? Call 877-803-7957 now!

I have to agree that the search is strange and inconsistent, if you type in "dependable care" - sometimes it will render nothing - at other times it will list all posts with those words in it - other times it will just show basically the same content as the forum index. Does it have a "learning" feature ?

The Google search is in the sidebar of the homepage. Which one are you saying is inconsistent: the native search or the Google search?

Really!? Go to Appliantology.org. It's on the RHS. Just below it are the Facebook, Twitter, as RSS buttons.

Can you post a screen shot of what you see as the forum homepage? I'll do the same when I'm back at my desktop later tonight.

As it should-- that gives you the option to hide the column. If you don't want it to go away, don't click the X! :P

As with everything on this site, it's understated and easy enough to happen. Were you able to get it back?

Yes, I have found the google search as well - it works ok, it was the native search that is inconsistent (the one on the bar with forums/members/subscriptions etc. I will just use the google search now
