This website runs off of IPBoard with a customized skin to make the website useful for our purposes. Virtually every webmaster who runs IPBoard complains about the search! The makers of IPBoard have vowed to address this but I don't have high hopes (outside of a few search engines like Google and Yahoo, most search efforts are terrible).

I've added a new default search. Now the search box defaults to Google Site Search and the results appear in a window that overlays the website.

The results are far superior. Google results are more likely to be what you intended to find. For example, search for "prayer" with Google results. Then select "e-Sword Downloads" (to use the IPBoard system) and view the results there for prayer. Google is so much better.

I would like to see Google results integrated better, but for now, this is a nice experiment.
