If you want a search solution for Webmasterworld

MSN still has it all indexed. Here's how to install it.

With all the Google dropping WebmasterWorld stuff, presumably there are people having trouble searching threads on WebmasterWorld at the moment.

A standby solution is to go to your control panel in WebmasterWorld, select "system Preferences" then in the "insert custon code at the top" put in:

<center><form method="get" action="http://beta.search.msn.com/results.aspx" target="_blank"><input type="hidden" name="cp" value="1252" /><input type="text" name="q" size="25" /><input type="submit" value="MSN beta" /><input type="hidden" name="q1" value="site:webmasterworld.com" /></form></center>

The quality of the results will probably degrade over time, but it is at least a short term solution for people.

Thanks Receptional!

I have been adicted to the Google site search, and now I have at least some search facility.

I noticed myself using WebmasterWorld less and less these days without a search...

hopefully the "google" issue will get resolved quickly

The Gigablast site search still works also, but over time if all spidering of the site is blocked I suppose that these searches will become less useful.

hourly "bump" for this thread would be a good idea :)
maybe "someone close to Brett" could mention it :)

It's also a good idea to "Flag" posts that you want to follow so you don't need to spend your time looking for them.

I think MSN is coping with new posts too.

Come see my forum LOL :)
