Google Custom Search

Any chance of getting Google Custom Search for the Escape Forum, like is available for FiberglassRV? I use it a lot! Google Custom Search - Fiberglass RV Forum Custom Search

Yes - Here you go: Google Custom Search - Escape Forum Custom Search

We'll get a link added in the header somewhere soon.

Yes, this has been very useful in searching old posts. I hate to post topics that have already been beat to death in the archives.

A link to this needs to be on the main page!

Thanks,

Glenn

Search problems

I'm trying to search for the size of the dinette bed in the Escape 21. I have seen it on the forum, but forget where.

I tried the search using +bed +dinette +size +21 for only posts with all 4 words. The regular search function returns pages and pages, since it must ignore the +'s. The Custom Google Search returns nothing; I think it's just searching the titles and not the text.

What is the best way to search the text for multiple words where all should be present?

In this particular case, you would have better luck checking the specifications at the Escape Trailer Industries website

Thanks Donna. You're right.

However for future searches, how do you require all words in your search to be present in the text of the posting?

Humm, I use the Google Custom Search fairly successfully.

However, if using the forums Advance Search just type all the words, and then choose whether you want info from entire posts or just the Titles.

But like any search, you are going to get a lot of hits the more words you search for. Brevity really does work best. For instance, you didn't need to search for "bed" at all. Just "dinette." And not "size" The downfall, is you need at least three characters for the search. "21" isn't a valid search term. You can use a Wildcard, the Asterisk. So you would have searched 21**

And experience counts a bunch. The more you search the better you'll get at it.
