Google search added to the forum search page

I've now added a Google search box to the PentaxForums.com Advanced Search page for easy searching of terms shorter than 4 letters. This form shouldn't be used for any other purpose as it does not return results as threads like the built-in forum search.

I hope this makes searching in general a bit easier for everyone!

Brilliant!

I'd thought about asking for a short-letter search function, and there it is! Thanks for anticipating my every desire! Next up: free 31 & 77 Ltds please!

Sorry to revisit this old thread, but I'm wondering where this feature has gone to.
I cannot see it in the Advanced Search page anymore.

It's gone, as we're working toward making the forum search better than the google search for that purpose. If you'd like to search the whole site, you can now do so from the homepage.
