 Built-in Google search for phpBB Software / Built-in Google search for phpBB


Idea details

On large forums the search can overload the server. One of the solutions can be using Google Custom Search Engine:
After the mod is installed the built-in search will use Google without visitors leaving the site and the server will not get overloaded. The only con of this system is that there’s no way to search private forums and sub-forums but maybe there’s a solution for that as well.
