Would you like to improve your search results on iRV2.com - Please Read

Hello All,

After reading a few threads regarding the issue of searching on iRV2.com and also reading about issues with using iPad or Tablets and the free app I decided to create a couple html widgets to make things better. The widgets are very simple to use and will give more precise results. You can limit your search to a specific forum or search all forums if needed. Each widget links back to each other, just click on the link at the far right. For the widgets to work on tablets and iPads the widgets need to be hosted on a website. I am currently hosting the files. I have done this on my own and provided for free. iRV2.com is not responsible for the use of these widgets.

Full Widget - iRV2 Forums Search
1 - If you click on the iRV2 logo on the top banner it will take you to iRV2.com and show you a list of all new/modified threads since your last logon. You need to be logged in for this to work.
2 - iRV2 link takes you to iRV2.com
3 - "Use Short Search Form" takes you to the short version of this widget.
4 - Clicking on the Forum's Name Title will take you to that Forum on iRV2.com.
5 - Entering a search term with search that Forum using Google. You can enter as many terms as you would like, you can even use complete phrase (question).

Small Widget - iRV2 Forums Search
1 - If you click on the iRV2 logo on the top banner it will take you to iRV2.com and show you a list of all new/modified threads since your last logon. You need to be logged in for this to work.
2 - iRV2 link takes you to iRV2.com
3 - "Use Long Search Form" takes you to the full version of this widget.
4 - "Search All Forums" will do just that using Google.
5 - "Select Forum to Search" choose a Forum from the pull down list and search that Forum using Google.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

DuckDuckGo Search Engine

Hi All,

After reading a few other post regarding search in general I discovered that many of you prefer to use DuckDuckGo for search engine because they don't do any tracking. I have decided to create a version of the Widget that uses that search engine. Here is the link.

Small Widget - iRV2 Forums Search
1 - If you click on the iRV2 logo on the top banner it will take you to iRV2.com and show you a list of all new/modified threads since your last logon. You need to be logged in for this to work.
2 - iRV2 link takes you to iRV2.com
3 - "All iRV2 Forums" the first choice in the pull down will do just that using DuckDuckGo.
4 - "Select Forum To Search" choose a Forum from the pull down list and search that Forum using DuckDuckGo.

Question Two word searches

Thanks for these suggestions. I still wonder if there are other search options. I was trying to find discussions on winterizing our house and none of the search options were working for me. I didn't want to start a new discussion is it was already out there. And it was, but it took me a long time to find it. Even using the old search method of adding "and" didn't work.

The "advanced search" built into the forum works well if there is only one word to search for.

Any suggestions?

I found only 1 thread via the Google search and it's 2 years old.

Feel free to start a new discussion in the Just Conversation forum.
