How do you search the board?
« on: May 25, 2008, 08:26:41 PM »
Is there a search function? All I see are "Home" "Help" "Profile" and "Logout" above... so is it somewhere else?

It was disabled because it was killing performance.  It was a crap search function anyway.

As a replacement, you can use google with a modifier "site:lawschooldiscussion.org" after your search term (no quotation marks).
I hate science because I refuse to assume that a discipline based in large part on the continual scrapping and renewal of ideas is unconditionally correct in a given area.

It's on the home page. Go under "Site" at the left, click "Home" and you will see a "Search" box.

which is just a google search with site:lawschooldiscussion.org

the "site:" modifier is often useful.

Hey this is a great forum. I just joined but I also was baffled by the lack of a search button maybe a link to the Google powered one on the top of the page would be helpful.

Just a suggestion,
Thanks,

Well, I suggested it and they never responded but I'm asking you. In your opinion, why do you feel they will not do it?

It uses too much bandwidth and therefore is too expensive
awkward follows you like a beer chasing a shot of tequila.
