Ever been frustrated that the search function on this site returns the THREAD on the FIRST PAGE, and you have to wade through hundreds of pages searching for some highlighting for your search term?

What have you done to your GMT today is the biggest example of a thread that is not handled well in site search. As of today, that thread is 142 pages long. Yikes. Your answer could be anywhere in there.

If you get this "Mother of all gmtnation threads" in your search, and you don't want to start on the first page and wade through the whole thread, do this:

Take your search term, say "Derale" (a manufacturer) and type into google search "derale site:gmtnation.com"

This limits your google search for "Derale" to this site only, and will get you directly to the specific page(s) that contains your search term, and save you a ton of time.

Happy searching.

Very useful for pretty much any vbulletin-based forum. Vbulletin's search feature has always been a little bit weak.
