Default Unanswered: Where has the search button gone?

Hi! I used to use the advanced search button for looking for items on WI, mostly for trade purposes. I know that there is still an advanced search option if you're looking for WI members, but the general search button available now is a google web search, not a WI search. I hope I'm making myself clear...how do I search for an item on WI? Thanks in advance

It has become Google search and I think it is MUCH more efficient I just tried it and I had what I was looking for within seconds, you just have to look below the Google tags and ours are RIGHT there

Oh, By the way, it is a 'Google CUSTOM search' meaning it is custom to

Hi, yesterday on another thread justin said he took it off because it requires searching almost eleven million posts and he is trying to find away to do it more efficently. I will go try to find it so you can see exactly what he had to say.

I don't see it either how to search for items in someone's GE. The Google Custom search brings up threads on WI but not trade threads so I don't know what's up with that. ???

Yes, I saw that. But the old search used to let you know what thread you were looking in (it would distinguish between the gift exchange and a discussion thread). I found it very helpful set up that way.
