bikeportland search function

I use (used) this a lot. Like the ability to explore archived conversations. The old version was not great; the new version is so terrible it is almost worse than no search function (sorry to be so blunt). Folks have made some suggestions for how to piggy back onto google to search this site:

But I would like to think that there would be a (fairly straightforward/free?) way to upgrade the internal search function here so that we could get back at least to the level of service (LOS) we had before the recent switch.

Thanks very much!

If you click the search icon (magnifying glass), and then click again in the empty search box without any search terms in it, it opens up a simple, empty search form on this page:

Thanks for this feedback, 9watts. I’ve passed it on.
