    Hey guys! I found a way to search the forum until the search feature is fixed...

    Go to Advanced Google Search:

    http://www.google.com/advanced_search

    In the top "Find Results" section you put your search term.

    In the 2nd section, 7th line, is the "Domain" option. Put in:

    betterthandiamond.com

    Then at the top click "Google Search". It will search only this site for your term. It will return pages on this site other than the message board, but I thought it would help in the meantime... [​IMG]

    I forgot to add you can also just go to Google.com and type this in the search line:

    search term site:betterthandiamond.com

    So if I wanted to search for moissanite I would type:

    moissanite site:betterthandiamond.com

    NOTE: There is no space between "site:" and betterthandiamond.com

    Hope that helps... [​IMG]

    Thank you so much! As I am horribly technically inadequate and search-challenged, your tips are greatly appreciated! [​IMG]

    If you put in moissanite site:betterthandiamond.com/discussion , then the search will return only items from the board. [​IMG]

    Hey, even half a search is better than none, ha ha. Thanks for adding the "site:betterthandiamond.com/discussion" option. It really helps. Slick!
