A Better Way To Search The Forum

Post by TheVoice »

The last time I checked, the vb-audio forum search function was broken; that's what I'd call it. For those that don't have a workaround, here is a method that seems to work well. Use this format when doing a google search. I use duck duck go, but it should work with any search engine: site:forum.vb-audio.com insert asio. In this example, insert asio was the search term. Just use site:forum.vb-audio.com. After .com leave a space and then enter the search term. Hope this helps somebody.

I'm using duckduckgo for this, too. It occurs to me, it may be helpful to embed that search on this site. There's a page here for automatically generating a search box to do this: https://duckduckgo.com/search_box

I took the dimensions from this site and made an example. This generated a search box like so:

Code: Select all

<iframe src="https://duckduckgo.com/search.html?width=208&site=forum.vb-audio.com&prefill=VB-Audio Forum Search" style="overflow:hidden;margin:0;padding:0;width:266px;height:40px;" frameborder="0"></iframe>
Maybe this is helpful?

I've seen the duck duck go box used on another website. I'm assuming implementing that solution would not require nearly as much resources as doing it internally.
