Cant find what you are looking for one this site?...

As it would seem the search on this site never seems to give me the results that i was after i have decided to set up a little custom google search engine...

See post #2 for link.

...fell free to use it should you wish.

I often resort to this too! "search term" site:]hotukdeals.com typed into google works a treat (without the quotes)

But yours looks handier!!

Advanced search here has never let me down. I always find what I need.

thanks gary

You haven't got Mod messenger in tags or in title on your (very useful) thread, which is why it probably didn't come up in search. I've just ]added it to tags on that thread :thumbsup:

EDIT : okay, take it back. Even with added tags the search for Mod messenger actually produces this thread with the google search tool but not the mod messenger one - very weird. Maybe add Mod Messenger to title of other thread ? You're a glitch gary_rip ;-)

Thanks for the feedback!

As was said earlier its not much more than using what harlzter said, but its a little more user friendly and it has a bit of a guide written under it... not forgetting the HUKD colour scheme!

Works fine for me when i put the details in.

Even with those added it still doesnt show for me... would prob be better of u edited those tags to make them into one tho... "mod messenger" not "mod, messenger"

...or just type mod messenger in this seach... as i said this for me (and i would think most others) would be a LOT easier.

EDIT: Im just using this as an example... i have trouble finding a lot of things and so do others with the amout of dupes and people saying they did do a search.

Amendment done, yet still can't find it on search. I'll try the wildcard search as emasu suggested - haven't used that for ages.

EDIT : still can't find it with . But if I search for in quicksearch in feedback it comes straight up in results. My brain must be asleep

If we're using this as an example, it's probably easier to do this :- google.co.uk/sea…ta=

And how would we find your search once it has gone down in the misc? Use HUKD's advanced search :?

Original Poster

emasu... if u dont want to use this then dont. I had set it up for my use only but thought i would share it with others.

I will be using it, and im sure others will, next time someone says they tried to search for something and they couldnt find it i hope one of the people that do use this will be able to post a link to this thread to help them out.

supermod

It's nice to have 2 options to find something, so if one search fails you have a second opportunity to find it. Another member suggested I use google to search HUKD, & your link makes it much easier & tidier. I'll refer / link to it if I see a thread where people are having problems with searching :thumbsup:

It may be based on what I said but a hell of a lot more effective, i've tried it to find a few obscure threads that I know advanced search couldnt find and with the google way took a bit of effort, but your way put at the top of the search:thumbsup:

You sir are a bloody genius!

Alt + F4 usually works for me.

your so good at these things they should put a link to them at the top of the page and employ you!

Thanks Gary .. big help xx :thumbsup:

Highly effective and extremely easy to use. :thumbsup:

Can filters be applied to this search for future releases or is that asking too much ?

Whatever the case 10/10 for a very useful function.

Bookmarked, repped and thanks. :thumbsup:

Original Poster

Nothing is asking too much... am always after new ideas for the things i post on here for existing projects or new projects!

But when you say filters... could you give me an example?

The new mod id has been added so it's changed the URL slightly - just bookmark this version instead > ]http//hu…706 :thumbsup:

(if you were joking ignore me :oops:)

EDIT : sorry I was still typing when you posted ;-)

"if " admin was to give some details to the site, i could do a search engine to search individual boards

probably wouldnt let me tho but all i would need is the database names for each board and then use a php function to search the relevant db's and tables :-D

just an idea if admin decides to get a better search :giggle:
