Question GEANT4 Web site search -- always zero results? 

Forum: Documentation and Examples
Date: 06 Nov, 2009
From: Michael H. Kelsey <Michael H. Kelsey>

As a new G4 collaborator, I've found myself doing a lot of searches for information. Unfortunately, the search interface at the top of http://www.geant4.org/ doesn't appear to "work." At least, it seems to very frequently return zero hits, even for information I can see is there.

For example, try searching for "John." You'll get back the "0 hits" result. Now follow the hyperlink to the membership list (http://www.geant4.org/geant4/collaboration/members.shtml), and you'll see that several of our colleages are named John :-)

To get around this, I've started just using Google, with the "site:geant4.org" qualifier.

Is the search interface still maintained? If not, would it be reasonable to replace it with something "better," such as Google's "Custom Search" interface (http://www.google.com/cse/?hl=en)?
