Could even be better then the forums search!

any tool that helps a person get desired information is a step in the right direction, well done.
Yes. Mostly better than the internal search.
And I have not to write all the time “site:forums.opensuse.org Keyword1 Keword2 …” like “” in the default Google search.
Maybe a link to openSUSE Forums Search with Google Custom Search | search.opensuse.org/forums/ could be added in the menu of the forums beneath the link to Advanced Search - openSUSE Forums | forums.opensuse.org/search.php ?
Only that I do not know if how to enter a search in a URL like I am able to do with the default Google Search like
site:forums.opensuse.org 14e4:432b - Google-Search
Did some testing, to me it looks much more powerful. Thanks to those who made this.
Nice. I used to be able to find reasonably popular packages with openSUSE package search linked in the download page standard search, but for a few months now I hardly get any hits.
Today I tried to find cups-pdf but no hits. I had to google to find the Printing repo. Not sure what had happened.

Yep, an essentially blank page is not much use!
indemnity in case of any hack. Since they usually claim there is no
risk, there shouldn’t be a problem providing me with the indemnity
A very good idea!

And I think the problem may be that there is no fuzzy search or at least search for parts of a word (at least in the package name).
I don’t like the slow forum search (with its cryptic picture that we have to decipher to proceed, just every time, making me feel like an unwelcome spammer). In fact, I relied more on google directly, but it was not so well targeted… Yeah specifying within google that you are searching within a particular website would do the trick… but I’m too lazy to put that line!
