Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Main Site's Search Functionality

    Main Site's Search Functionality

    Hey guys,
    I sent this as a private message to Kirupa a couple of days ago but he's probably too busy to answer so I'm gonna post it here in case anyone knows.

    I noticed that the main site, when you search, uses a search engine powered by google which comes back with results for this site only. Can you please point me in the direction to where I can get something like that for my site? I did some searching in the developer section of google but from my understanding that is a paid solution. is this true for this site? or is there a free alternative? any help would be greatly appreciate.

    Thanks!
    Matt

    You can also use Adsense for search. It's the same thing except you get money from the ads shown on the results page.

    Yea, w/ the link I provided in the control panel you can optionally add Adsense to it too . Does the same thing except you have more control over the options you want (I think. I don't use Adsense so I dunno what options you get)
