    Because of the limitations in the software that runs the forum the built-in search may not give you the results that you are looking for - if any!

    Here is how to do it.

    Google has a function to do a search within a specific site not just the whole web. As Google actually indexes PhantomPilots.com pretty well this is a much more fruitful way of searching.

    Test it out and bookmark it in your browser for future easy reference.

    Click this link and enter your search criteria:

    Deep Google Custom PhantomPilots.com Search

    or the actual link if you want to copy it...

    "https://www.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx=014775389315664725445:ejku2ysgyhi"

    Thanks to Shrimpfarmer for the original link.

    Thanks IrishSights, great suggestion! If you can't find it with the built in search, try this method.

    Thanks, the quick link is nice. You can do this with any website by starting with "site:" then the website then your search term.....for instance to search props on phantompilots you just type this in google. Again, this works for any web address.

    site:www.phantompilots.com props

    It might be helpful for whomever is administering the board to add it to the header.
