Too often I can't find previous articles despite providing excellent search queries. For example, if I know most of the words in the TITLE and the original poster's USERNAME, I still might get zero (0) hits. Perhaps the search form should just redirect input to google appending site:forum.bitcoin.org ?

I always end up on Google when I search the forums.

"site:Bitcoin.org (search term here)" is my friend.

Limited search terms by time periods within Google helps too.

Remember that the search is always done in the context of the page you were on. Always do you search from the home forum page if you don't remember where it was posted.

The SEARCH link at the top of the page will also let you search the entire forum, or select sections to search.
