Whats with the search engine? How do I search for topics relating to Port Road?

"The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: port road.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards."

The forum based search is limited as searching through this much text really puts a strain on the server.

Look up a little in the blue header. There's a "Google customer search" there that will do a much better job. Type "port road" WITH the quotes and you will get a good result.

That'd be Custom Search, Mr. Hell :P

Alternatively you can just go straight to google itself and type the following:

"Por Road" site:sensational-adelaide.com

and it'll give you results from this site only.

Then could we drop the built-in search box that sits just above the forum list, and move the google-powered box down to that more visible location?

Err... last time I checked this search function worked. Unless this is a shot at Google?

No, I think Howie gets a little cash flow from Google for S-A, which is a good thing. :)
