Default how to search the site

with the search feature dead ppl are complaining. i have figured out how to google a site and here is what you do (its not that hard) this is the link to search the TO site, click it and when it loads type in what your searching for in the search bar.
http://www.google.com/search?q=%20&s....org/index.php

if you wanted to search a forum or subforum of the site you change the underlined part of the link to match the URL (link) of the forum or sub forum.
http://www.google.com/search?q=%20&sitesearch=http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php


im tired now but tomorrow i will dig out how to put the google bar into a site, it outlines all the code to use and everything


edit: this is the code you would need (obviously changing the URL)
Code:
<form method="get" action="http://www.google.com/search">

<input type="text" name="q" size="31"
 maxlength="255" value="" />
<input type="submit" value="Google Search" />
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="" />
 The Web
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch"
 value="askdavetaylor.com" checked /> Ask Dave Taylor<br />

</form>
now i can hope the search bar gets fixed or replaced soon :P

er.. all you do is go to google, type in your search query, and add " site:http://www.tauonline.org" to the end of the query?

e.g. searching for
Code:
start a tau army site:http://forums.tauonline.org
But this only works if the site/forum is indexed by google, which most of it is. But it will only be up to date within the past few days.
