Why was it disabled? Seems logical on a motorcycle site to have it enabled

What am I doing wrong with my searches ??

Hi all. I was hoping to do a bit of reading on anyone that has swapped their 640 Adv to a 950 Adv or vice versa and what their thoughts were. I've tried to do the right thing and search for this stuff myself, but I've searched on everything I can think of in the way of '640 vs 950', 'who has swapped their 950 for a 640', etc, etc and the results just say the words are too small or common or whatever it was. Can anyone either direct me to this info, tell me how I can search more effectively, or even tell me of their experiences of swapping one bike for the other, either way ? Thanks.

Try using Google to search the site. I have a the google tool bar attached to me browser, so I can just search the ADV website via google. I know there's a way to do it directly from google as well, but can't really show you..


Here's what I found just using your first search criteria..

Here's my actual search..

http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...640%20vs%20950

You could just imitate the terms in the search bar and change the last bit to search for what ever you want on ADV

Thanks Gramps. That's a great tip and a great help. I didn't want to be one of those guys who doesn't do their searches, but I was coming up with bupkis time and again. Much appreciated.

Searching?

I have downloaded the "new" google toolbar, at least it says I have.
I don't see it anywhere.
Don't see the "new button" dedicated to serching.

What am I overlooking?

I'm using Firefox as my browser.. Here's a screen shot of my browser, the mouse it hovering over the "search site" button(highlighted button that says "site"). It may be something you need to add to the Google Toolbar by right clicking and going to "customize". You'll get a list of buttons that you can drag and drop to the tool bar.

Fight the kludge

Hi guys,

All of the above options are way too fidgety. I would kindly request one of two modifications:

1) Turn on 3 letter search, not 2 letter search. That should pick up most of the missing biking terms. At this point it's crazy not to. With all the elastic computing/cloud/blah blah you should be able to get enough computing power for this not to affect the site.

2) If you're dead set against that, embed appropriate Google search boxes in each forum/thread so we can search without having to do any finger yoga constructing the Google queries.

My KLR searches thank you.

Daniel
P.S. This is a killer site, search or not

I imagine that you're going to have to limber up.

I use the bookmark found here to search any page with Google.

Simple and works great!

Or build a simple "fill in the blanks" web page that uses Google search with instructions on how to search forums only, threads only, titles only, etc.
Have the ADV Search open that in a new window.

Code:
google site:advrider.com allinurl:"t=163900"
will search *this* thread for the term "google".

cheers.
I am having trouble searching in the flea market, gear (f=54). The following code does produce lots of hits:

aerostich site:www.advrider.com inurl:"f=54"

but the resulting links found by google are just to pages listing the thread titles, even though the text seems to be searched. Any idea how to have google return THREADS when it finds a hit??

Cool thing is that the latest Google Toolbar makes site searching really easy, with a new button dedicated to searching only the site that's currently loaded. Just enter a search term and click. Go here to d/l the latest version...

Hi. One of the great things about the software used for this site is the ability to search within a particular forum, or a particular thread. Unfortunately, the google search approach doesn't help with that. What should I do? Do the administrators of this site plan to implement the capabilities for search this software offers? It is important to really taking advantage of the great info here.

Thanks.
