You are correct, sir! That was what I did. Though, groveling and shuffling backwards, I find the new "google BG search" option, lacking. Much as I do the normal Google web search. I don't know what they have done (too much try to "find" what you, in particular, are searching for versus finding information? Or the "fake news" algorithm stuff? Or so many fakers trying to grab clicks by faking their sites with stuff not included on them? I don't know but searching used to be easier on the internet.) Praise and no offense.
yeah, i know some won't like the google search, but it's here to stay. using it allows me to decrease the size of the database by about 480MB which is nuts. a custom bellgab/google search takes almost 100% of the search overhead off of bellgab's server and puts it on google. and finally, not a single bellgab user has ever
said anything good to me about the forum software's built in search. not once. the custom google search might be a lateral move for users, but in terms of server overhead, it's a winner.
these tips for refining your google searches also apply to the custom bellgab/google search:http://mashable.com/2011/11/24/google-search-infographic/#4gfQfp5tZGq3
