repeated questions

the discussion board has many repeated questions and the topic searching facility is insufficient. I wanted to search the Theravada translation for verse no. 585 but could not do.

I like to use Google to search websites/forums.

for example you enter this into Google for dhamma wheel:

site:dhammawheel.com "search term goes here"

I agree with contemplating. The search facility in this Forum (and most other Forum software) is generally quite inferior to Google. The Google database may be hours or days out of date, but that's not a problem if you are searching for old topics.

Although it is not on every page. Google saffron is available at the bottom of the home page.
but even google needs precise criteria to render the wanted result.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
