Searching through the BassesByLeo forum

It really grinds my gears that so many forums seem to have a mantra of "search before you ask". Thankfully, that doesn't happen here. If someone asks a question, they deserve a proper answer. That answer may have search results, but it's still a helluva lot better than "Search first then ask". Thank you to everyone for helping to keep a human (and humane) vibe going on here.

Having said all that, I understand that a lot of folks still like to search anyway. phpBB forums, of which BassesByLeo is one, have a search function built in, but its level of usefulness is right up there with mammary glands on a boar hog. If the search criteria is VERY simple, you MAY find what you're after. But don't count on it. Use Google instead.

When doing a Google search, you can specify the website name you want it to search. For example:

To search for Kiloton, your search entry would look like this: kiloton This specifies what you're searching for (kiloton) and where to search (

Looking for a wiring diagram for an L-2000? Try this: l-2000 wiring diagram Where the first search only looked in the forum, the second search looks in the main BassesByLeo page as well as the forum.

And just because we can: kittens

Hope this helps you find things.
