Help required: Site search
What a day yesterday. I've upgraded some software behind the scenes and I've been working all day to get the new features going. These features will be pretty cool, and they are on the way, but there's a few issues yet to iron out and one rather large new problem.
The site search is taking an age to run, somewhere up to fifteen seconds at times, and that's just not on. So I'm working on that just now, however it would be really interesting to know how many of you use the site search. I am considering replacing it with a Google search page. Would that pose any issue?
Can I get some feedback on this, it would really be appreciated. Then I can get on working on the new features as well as writing like mad, and maybe release something new on the site. Let me know if you use the site search, how you found it before today, how it is today, would you go for a Google or Yahoo search instead, etc.
