An Alternative Search Function for the Forum:

Note: This function is built into each page of this web site with the Search Escapees Forum with Google form at the top of the page.

Have you just about given up on the built in search on the forum?

Instead use Google to do the searching.

All you need to search a specific web site is add the word " site ", and a colon " : " and then the URL.

For example, to search for manufacturers that are out of business on RVNETWORK.COM, enter "manufacturers out of business" in the Google search area.

It will gave you the post you were looking for at the top of the list.

Here's the Example:;btnG=Search

A Key only Zoom is holdong the <Ctrl> key down and hitting the <+> or <-> key to enlarge or reduce the display.

Note -  If you have a prblem with the size of the font when in the Editor, do not use a larger font.  That will make a post that is hard for oothers to read. Use the Zoom mode instead.
