! Uh ?

I've never had the 404 page as a result of a search. Searching always returns something ... although not necessarily what you were searching for!

The URL is missing from that image.  It would be nice to see exactly what was up there.

FWIW, I have never had that problem, either.

He is talking about the blog home page, not the forum. (edited)

www.eevblog.com
Type something in the search box
Hit enter
-> 404

e.g.
http://www.eevblog.com/search?cx=partner-pub-0894473037274043%3A7p2w5o-lpza&cof=FORID%3A10&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=nixie&sa=Search

Oh, yeah.

I don't think I've ever seen that work (but it's been a long time since I tried).

Google or Duckduckgo and use
Code: [Select]
**keywordshere** site:eevblog.com to do the search, which would limit the results to EEvblog only.

Why so complicated? Just include "eevblog" in the search term.

'eevblog dmm' returns to me many non forums hits. site: filter out those results. YMMV.
