    The "Search" function on this forum - a work-around to get much better search results

    Primal Fuel
    I have been frequently frustrated by the poor search results yielded by the search engine here. Perhaps its a limitation of vBulletin software? FWIW "Invision Power Board" is a much better, but that's by the by

    Anyway if you want better results from your search, use everybodies friend:Google.

    "SEARCH WORD" site:http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/" in the google search bar. (thats all one chain there -)

    or go to the google advanced search page http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en

    and put your keyword and in the section near the bottom Search within a site or domain put
    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/
    you also have other options there of getting tighter search parameters.


    The Google engine does a much better job of seeking out what you want especially for searches of more than one word. Google seems to thoroughly scour and get all the results.

    Yes, I sometimes go to Google.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
