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='' + 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!
