Has the Bowsite search function been aga
The format looks different, and I get the same error message every time....which I have never seen before.....
Funny you mention it Jake as I was trying to find your “Super Slam” thread just the other day to no avail. I would think a man of your “status” around here would have some pull! ;)
I gave up on the search function. I just google “bowsite (topic I want to search)”
Very disappointing, as the Bowsite represents a bit of credible history of modern bowhunting. And some "incredible" history. Much of it is now gone. Poof....
I tried using "Bowsite" in my Bing search and it didn`t help....I finally saw a "Bowsite" forum response on page 3.
ten years ago the search function on this site was great, but I think when the site became mobile compatible or something it was changed to what we are left with today.
the search function on leatherwall is great, you can search by key word or handle. I'm not sure why bowstie search function sucks so bad.
Yeah just use Google. It works.
Google doesn’t work either unless threads are actually just gone completely.
I started a thread titled “My son, Riley” on the 3rd or 4th day of January, 2015. I bookmarked that thread on my phone and work desktop.
The bookmark no longer works. And I can’t find that thread with google or bowsite search
The “topics I contributed to” on My Bowsite, only go back December 2017
It’s not a big deal. But I miss that thread. I liked to read it occasionally
Pat! Can anything be done to recover these threads or fix the search? Its a bummer. So many great hunts and tales. Lou is spot on, there is a piece of bowhunting history here.
I do know that a lot of old bowsite threads that I have bookmarked are still there. Here's one from 1999: GOTA OPPOMSUM
When using google, I found what works best is to type in search terms, followed by this string of text: site:forums.bowsite.com
If your thread doesn't show up in the results, either it hasn't be indexed by google, or it may have been accidentally (or purposely) deleted.
