MTFCA Google search possible with new forum?

Post by Bob in Texas » Wed Jan 09, 2019 6:24 am

One of the things I have enjoyed with the old forum is the ability to do a "MTFCA Google" search for a subject and find old posts that already answer my question. Anyone know if that Google search will find responses in the current new forum?

This is set up by the admins... it’s controlled by the “bots” group on the forum. If set up correctly, then the forum content gets crawled by search engines ro”bots” or spiders as they are sometimes called and you could do a google search on forum content.

The choice of this forum software was a very good one. There are endless things that can be done and customized. The key is to keep it simple!

Just tried this using the new address http://www.modeltfordclubofamerica.com but came up empty. I think the search feature on this new software will be robust enough the "Google" searches will be a thing of the past. I just tried the forum search engine and it is relatively quick.

So the answer to this post question is no?

If no, then will the admins fix it to do google searches?
