    Google Search Option

    Didn't the advanced search button used to have an option to use Google to seach the FW website? That was much more convenient when using a multiple word search. For example "plane iron sharpening jig."

    Using the current advanced search, this seach string will pull up every post using any single word in the search string. I tried using plus (+) between the words and quotes (" "), but nothing seemed to work.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Tom, Sorry we haven't added that option back in to the new template yet, but plan to. I've got a lot going on right now, so it may be a few weeks yet. You can do the search from the Google.com advance search by putting familywoodworking.org as the site to search.

    The vBulletin search does support AND, OR, and NOT as boolean keyword search operators also.
