    I usually use google to search for old posts. It is generally quite effective.

    Yep, plus Xenforo's software search engine is very basic. If you want something better, they ask you to pay them to put extra power behind the search engine. I shit you not. It's not even a one time payment, either, it's a subscription. It's easier for people to use Google.

    That said, if the people up top want it, I can easily add a Google site search to the board's search function.

    That's a great idea, actually, one that I heartily endorse! :techman:

    Awesome. Done. I integrated it with the Xenforo search engine. When you type in your search term, a page will show you two tabs: the first with the Google internal site results, and the second with XF's forum search.
