Went to do a search and couldn't find the box normally at the top for search. Search with dropdown menu is there but the results are unsatisfactory.

Is this just me, my broswer, or are others experiencing the same? shrug

My Google search box in gone too.
I thought it was something I did,
as I'm a techno-idiot. I would like
to have it back.

Thanks for the responses. Just getting ready to post....Bueller, anyone, anyone? wink2

Hope the powers that be put it back too. The alternative search function is lousy.

There's always going over to Google and searching BITOG through the Advanced Search function there. Use this string:

(search terms here) site:bobistheoilguy.com

when entering something into Google. So a search for intake cleaner would look like:

intake cleaner site:bobistheoilguy.com

when entered into Google's search bar.

Hope this helps!

Yep, that's what I ended up doing and found exactly what I was looking for. But, having the box is more convenient.

Good information to know though.

Last year our cost for Google custom search was $100. This year the cost was going up to $15,000, which we obviously can't afford.

Now can we make the sidebar go away, too? Why does that have to stay?

Wayne, $15k is ridiculous, no wonder it's gone.

For anyone who didn't understand how to do an advanced Google search from Sciphi's instructions, here are the basics.

Open Google.

Click on the tiny hotlink on the right titled "Advanced search".

In the top bar titled "all these words" type what you're searching for. For example, brake pads, or Red Line oil, etc.

In the bottom bar titled "search within a site or domain" type bobistheoilguy.com

Hit Enter

The sidebar is a good thing on the front page, but it would be great to not have it there while reading threads. That's my wish, have it disappear while reading threads smile

That sounds reasonable.

It would be better (if it HAS to stay, for some reason) if it were on the right side. We naturally try to start reading from left to right, so having a big bar taking up the left edge of the screen is somewhat counter-intuitive.

That's criminal!

Let's send them some 5W-30 with a bad add pack.

Direct link to google search:
http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Abobistheoilguy.com

Do not remove the "site:bobistheoilguy.com" from the search bar. Just type your search key words right after it or before it.



Another option: one of the BITOGers wrote a search plugin for Firefox that does the same thing:
http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1646775

Not sure if it works in FF4, but it does work in FF3.

I sure hope you guys had not selected "auto-renewal" on the Google site search! That would have been one heck of credit card bill surprise in the mail :-(

Now can we get rid of the sidebar? I recall we had very heated discussion about it while ago and the reason it was there was for the Google site search.
