    How about...
    • When I click on the search bar, it clears the 'Search Forums...' text.
    • Some autocomplete feature?

    Agree about the first part. Pretty sad that this isn't done automatically.

    Also, how about a better search engine? The results I get are so meaningless and useless. I have a much better time simply googling with the "site" keyword.

    Agreed. I was going to mention to build a more robust search engine, but that's quite the endeavor. Maybe some mods/addons to vBulletin can improve the search capacity?

    Under "Search" there is a Google custom search.

    It used to by default. I have mentioned this in another thread...I know the Admins have been working on things including those menus so it's likely something that will get fixed shortly.

    +1. Anything to make the search feature more usable will make everybody happy!
