David (tanygaer) has pulled off a nice touch for the forum. He has managed to install the Google search function onto the forum main page which means we now have two search functions. He worked the Google one to trawl the forum and not the whole web. This gives us an additional option to the basic forum search, which I'm afraid wasn't added to the improvements list in the upcoming forum upgrade. This should be very useful at least until the built-in search eventually gets revamped.

Does this search all forums, or only the current one or something.

I ask because I went to play with it and typed in 'kneasles' (from the Swaggerman joke the other day).

Google couldn't find it, but the regular search did.

It Googles the whole forum based on the previous Google trawl, probably a few days previously. It's a useful addition as there is no limit to how many results get returned, I see the stock ultra search only returns 200 results which I guess is to shorten page load times. It's a nice extra option to have on a large forum.
