Well done!

Greetings,

Thanks for that David - I can take it out of my signature now!

I'm glad it "pops" a new tab/window when used, rather than replacing the existing DW one.

Metta,
Retro. :)

And may I add a "well done" to Retrofuturist who has been working on it since its inception. From memory, I think Retro began working on that around the same time that Dhamma Wheel was created. Perhaps earlier.
So, congratulations to Retro as well as David as it adds yet more desirable functionality to DW which will serve the membership now and in the future.
kind regards

Ben

Hello all,

This is magnificent! I put in the word 'abuse' in the search engine, thinking I might get three or four results. I got TEN pages of links.
Well done! Much merit to Retro and David!

Also, when I go to this adress : http://www4.clustrmaps.com/fr/counter/m ... /index.php
In google chrome I can see all the dots, but in firefox, I can only see the yellow ones (not the red ones).

But it's not really important for me...

Just thought I'd mention:

Even though we have an internal Dhamma Wheel search box in the top right, I have found that searching with Google Saffron is much more effective, even when searching for posts or topics from Dhamma Wheel.

Actually, you just have to have "site:www.dhammawheel.com" somewhere in your search query, not necessarily in the beginning. So, if I want to search "Ajahn Chah" on dhammawheel, these three suggestions would work the same :
site:www.dhammawheel.com ajahn chah
ajahn chah site:www.dhammawheel.com
ajahn site:www.dhammawheel.com chah

Thanks Adrien.

I just added all of those except one (which didn't pass the need to have virtually exclusively Theravadin site content).
