    You may have noticed that there is a new text box search to the top right of every page of the forum. This is a search tool powered by Google and ONLY searches the BYC forum.

    Now you have your choice of search, either the built in search tool here:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/search.php

    or the new search using BYC Search Powered By Google.

    So, please give it a try and provide any feedback, suggestions, ideas.

    If you want to search ALL of BYC and the forum you can use the BYC Search Powered By Google on the home page of BYC here: http://www.backyardchickens.com/

    Wow that's great. The forum search has not been that great a way to find a topic, like the right dosage for an antibiotic. This found them for me FAST!

    You know what I just LOVE about the new search? I can search for state abbreviations! A lot of people put things like "Roosters in WA" and in the old search it wouldn't let me search for WA. Now not only does the Google search look for WA, or looks for Washington too! Yay! [​IMG]

    Worked for me. The search results on the left overlapped the ads by Google, on the right, by about an inch. Probably me. [​IMG]
