There are two ways to search the forum. One way sucks and that's the search box on the right with the little magnifying glass next to it. Forget it.

The best way is this button! I have set to do a Google site search and it's far more powerful and effective than the other method. I use it all the time, so keep this in mind when you need to find an old thread, topic, etc.

And here's another GREAT search tip to easily make a similar tool for searching every website you're on. Google site search script

Yeah, vBulletin's built-in search (the forum software) is pretty pathetic. And if you make that google search script you're armed with badass search tools.

Thanks Sam,
It is almost a reflex to use the small search box because it is so popular on other web pages.
