Thoughts on SJ's search engine

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Lucas Wiseman, Jun 30, 2007.


Which do you prefer for the search at the top of every page of this site?

Poll closed Jul 7, 2007.
  1. The new Google search

  2. The way it was before

    About two weeks ago I changed the search at the top of the page to a Google search engine. Just trying to get some feedback on whether to keep it or not. Thanks.

    I like it but what the hell do I know?

    I like the old version's "search subject line only" feature.

    That said, having both searches available is fine.

    I should note, that the old search is still available by clicking "SEARCH" on the blue menu bar near the top of the page.

    Is there any way you change the default setting to be SportsJournalists.com rather than the web?

    Hmm.. I could try.

    I think the current way is fine, but I don't use it enough to really give a hoot one way or the other.
  8. Is that because you rarely find what you're looking for?

    That's the case with me. I've given up trying to search for stuff. But I type that without any malice. I accept it. ;D

    That would be nice. Too many times I've searched for something on here and absentmindedly didn't check the right button.

    I found when we first instituted it that when I logged in and would type in my username, when I tabbed to put in my password it sent the cursor up into the search bar. So it delayed me.

    Now I've gotten used to using the mouse to move down a line, so I don't know if that's been fixed or not. But that's why I voted for 'the way it was before.'

    I just seldom need to search for anything.
