    Don't know if this has been suggested before, because i can't search the forums for the topic πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    But instead of just searching for posts belonging to a specific author, add as a search option keywords as well. It shouldn't be hard to implement.

    This site has had a "Google Search" function for content on the site for quite some time now.

    Click on "Google Search" from the "Search Forums" page linked on the "Forums" page.

    It's quite lacking, though. Older posts often don't show up at all, and I really miss more advanced search functions, e.g. searching for posts about a certain topic by a certain user within a certain time period. Most internet fora have something like that. It would also be nice to be able to search the private fora. But this has been suggested many times, and so far Russ hasn't given any indication that it's something he's working on, so it probably won't happen within the next few decades.

    Since the Google Search function only returns pages that Google itself would produce, I'm not surprised that the private fora are not searched. In fact, I'd be quite alarmed if they were.

    Of course. But I would expect it to be possible by other means than Google Search.

    You often get better results if you search redhotpawn as opposed to the others.

    It only searches pages that Google have indexed.
