    Default How to SEARCH for News Articles and Threads in the CA Section

    Because the Forum Search Function does not work very well you can also use this method to find what you are looking for...

    1) Go to Google
    2) Type in several search terms, for example FARLAM MARIKANA GARYVDH (or your own username if you started the thread or posted in it) and press enter.
    3) If you are lucky the thread will come up right away in the first few results
    4) If it does not appear right away then add this string to the end of your search terms "site:mybroadband.co.za" (separated by a space, without the quotes)
    5) You should now be able to search all the threads on MyBB for what you are looking for.
    6) The more you do this you will soon realise that you can just add this qualifier [site:mybroadband.co.za] to your Google searches to search MyBB.

    I'm trying to find a way to create a Custom Google Search that will search the MyBroadband Website and will reside in my Firefox Search bar at the top Right.

    Why don't you chaps fix the forum search function instead of telling us how to Google the topics? Just my 2c.
