Board » Technical Support » search option for secific item in tech support

Hi there, I've noticed that one cannot search the tech support board for an specific item. I wanted to search the board to see if my problem has been mentioned before and/or solved.
So I think maybe a search option is something to think off.
for my problem I made a new post.
A search function for the forum has been requested a couple of times before. I'm sure at some point we'll have a search function in this, or a new forum.

For now, you can use google to search the sailonline forums, type in:
site:sailonline.org/board parrot
to search for "parrot" on the sailonline forums.
to kroppyer: Thanks for the hint, I'll remember it for next time. Good sailing !
As above can be for hrs just stationnary TA

I did a google search on this and got 328 results.
search forum site:sailonline.org/board

To use google search to search sailonline forums.
use the word or term then type site:sailonline.org/board
example: to find posts on performance loss, type
performance loss site:sailonline.org/board
then hit "enter"...you should get 271 results, which is a lot easier to scan than the entire forum.
Another example: to find posts by javakedna, type
javakeda site:sailonline.org/board
then hit "enter" you'll over 500 mentions of javakedna

Which brings up another question, why not put one of these posts about how to search the forum into the "sticky" category? Also maybe all the "sticky" threads should be in their own section. Maybe under the title "FAQ".

Some time ago I set up a Custom Search provided by Google and anyone can use it from their own browser.

Cut and paste this url into your browse and open it. https://goo.gl/4CJ6K9

Then save/bookmark the page. I call mine "Sailonline.org Forum Search"

You should now have a search facility for the SOL Forum

Just remember it is not part of the SOL web site and is a separate stand alone page generated by Google.

I will see if someone can embed a link in an appropriate place on the SOL site and also follow up Jack's suggestion.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
