Just a thought on 'forum searches', a topic that keeps coming up and seems to keep presenting challenges for (mainly new) users.
A while back I found that it is possible to create a so-called 'programmable search engine' link.
Not having any coder or web talents, I still gave it a shot. This is the URL it resulted in:https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=426af386625354430#gsc.tab=0
I had completely forgotten about it, but I just ran into the link I created back then, and it still seems to work.
So maybe it wouldn't be difficult to add something like this to the forum pages?
It might be some sort of improvement?
