I will try and get it over here this weekend.

Note: I have the page defaulting to search for "Sasa" but I will put a search box in the header of the forum pages and whatever is put in the search box will be searched for on the page.

That was easier than it looked :D

It took over twice as long to figure out Google's documentation than it actually took to write the code. :roll:

I'm liking this Google search feature more and more. I can actually find things now on the Bambooweb.info!

Location: We are less than one hour south of downtown Houston. We are located in Wild Peach, Texas located half way between Brazoria and West Columbia. Exit hwy 36 onto County Road 354. Take County Road 353 west . Go approximately 2.4 miles. We are on the left.
That search feature is one of the best things you have done! Thanks...

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!! The previous search feature was I think the only part of bambooweb.info that left me wanting more (well my plant list could use another 100 or so boo! :wink: ).

I finally made it to Florida, and I'm on my friend's machine, but it looks like it defaults to only 4 results per page? Is that something that can be changed by the user, or did you have that hard coded just for testing purposes?

Did I say Awesome yet?!!!

Click the More Results button, and you get many more results per page (looks like 10 per page). It is just the first page that only has 4 results.

I will have to see if google allows showing more than 4 results on the first page. Google has two ways that someone can add a search to a page and the other one defaults to one result but you can change it to 8. I will have to see if there is a setting to change the one I used.

Ho Bill,

Any reason the Google search feature is not working? I'm using the same words I used the other day to look up "stuff" on Bambooweb.info and now I get nothing for the search now. A few day ago I was getting loads of infor using the new Google search feature.

I don't know what was the problem. I just checked and it worked for me. I have not done anything to the code in a couple of days other than changing the database settings and Google does not use this database.
Google does have a limit on the number of searches. Have you done more than 10,000 searches today? :lol:

Bill: When I use the same terms (still held in memory by my browser) that I used to originally test out Google on Bambooweb.info, then no search information comes up. I tried new term/words and it works. I'll do some thinking and see how I can fix that. It must be a local thing.

ghmerrill: The answerer is "a lot". But I have my computer and porn sites to visit, which also takes up some of my time. :D

I have also had a problem where it would show search results for the site but nothing for the forums but if you type in the site information in a google page it works. I checked the Google search API group and it looks like other sites are also having problems with the search.

I also found two other search APIs that look like they will also work so I might check the Yahoo search if Google is going to stop working. The Yahoo Search looks like it takes more programming but it also has more options.

Bill
