MAny people have been having issues with the search engine, but have no fear, help is here!

I'll just pull directly from what was on speedsolving.com:

Like annonced here is the link to a google only related to cubing (By S├ębastien FELIX and Erik AKKERSDIJK).

http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=01683 ... o_f2otwty0

PS:If you want to help us to add more usefull websites email me and i'll send you an invitation to collaborate on this website.


This is bassicaly a google search, but it only searches through certain cube related sites, such as speedsolving, jaaps, the WCA site, and twistypuzzles.

This search does not seem to work with older threads (that is, before the forum upgrade).
It seems to only work for messages posted recently.

For example, if you go to google and search for an entire sentence which exists inside a new message, the result will be listed in the search.
But if you search for a sentence which exists inside an old twisty-forum message, it will not be found.

I hope there is a way around this, because it could make searching extremely efficient by using the google menu.

Hi, Google Toolbar is the only such browser extension that i allow on my pc(s). No other toolbar really adds any decent value to a browser (IMHO - because google is the best searchengine and other reasons). The feature i really LOVE is the up-one-level-thing, it gives a new efficient way of browsing. Tremendous feature !!
