Default Google Custom Search

Google Custom Search


Pretty much the simplest way of performing a search on Team-BHP. The integrated google search supports any kind of search style (single search term, combinations, phrases, two character terms and more). Newbies who are unfamiliar with forum softwares, will prefer this search method.

1. Use the search box on the "top right hand corner" of each page. Enter your search query and click on the arrow:

2. BINGO! The search results. If you wish, you can further refine your search by clicking on any of the labels (marked in red in the image below):

Default Advanced Forum Search

Basic Forum Search


1. Click on the "search" link from the navbar:
Name:  Quick Search 1.JPG
Views: 12036
Size:  58.8 KB


2. Enter your query here (e.g. Toyota). Remember that your search term must contain a minimum of 3 characters (e.g. BMW). If you wish to search for a combination of words (e.g. Mahindra Jeep), enter the search terms with a + sign in between (e.g. Mahindra + Jeep). This command will search for threads containing ALL of the words entered.

If you only want to search for keywords in thread titles, check-mark the "Search Titles Only" box. This is a great way to get accurate results:

3. Clicking on the "Go" button will take you to the results page:
