a better way to search forum.joomla.org

Post by jrevillini » Wed Jan 30, 2008 2:34 am

in firefox (you use firefox, right?), create a new bookmark

Name should be: 'search joomla forum for ...'
Location should be the following Javascript:

Code: Select all

javascript:location.href='http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=site%3Aforum.joomla.org+' + prompt('Enter your search string as you would in google:', '');
Click OK.  There!  You've created a tool to search the forums which supports relevance and quoted strings AND you've saved OSM some bandwidth!

Peace,
James
