Google search results cut off

When I use the Google search option in these forums, I only see 5 or 6 results. Then comes the banner for Other Social Knowledge Communities, cutting off additional results. There doesn't seem to be a way to scroll further down the Google results.
Is there a way to see these? Thanks.

Sorry, but I was unable to duplicate your experience. I started with the Search tab on the blue menu bar above. My Google search produced 376 results on 10 pages.

Regardless, is it possible a pop up of some sort is covering your results? Is there any sort of way to close it? Sometimes the "Close Window" or X that is usually in the upper right corner is hidden a bit. They would rather you not close it. Good luck.

Yes there is a very simple way to use Google and get all the results. In a new tab go to Google and use it directly.

At the suggestion of someone here, I think, I use ghostery as a pop-up blocker. I am stunned by the amount of tracking. Sometimes more than 30 on one page.

Anyway, I thought the Google search on the blue menu bar above searched just this site. If so, that is very different than a Google web search.

Try Ghostery.

PS, I double checked. The Google search above is a custom search of just this site. That is helpful. Again, 10 clean pages of results.

Now I see the additional pages

Well, just used Google in the blue box to search this site and now I have page numbers at the bottom with additional results. Now I'm wondering if I just didn't see them previously. Thanks everyone for responding.

For a number of years, I've always opened a new tab and used the FiberglassRV custom search.

I have by browsers set to google.com as home. So I simply open a new tab, then click on the little house and walla I've got Google open and ready to search.

I think you may be right about its being a popup on the bottom of the window.

That said, it seems that popups have become so overused these days that it can, at times, be next to impossible to see the webpages we're trying to read. It would seem to be related to the particular webpages, or their hosting sites, which is one reason I hate to click on blind links.

if you're using generic google search, adding `site:fiberglassrv.com` to your search terms will restrict your search to this forum.

Why not just use "Search Site / Google" at the bottom of the search box?

So the suggestion was made to try Google in a separate tab/browser to overcome that problem.

The OP has now said the "Site Search/Google" internal forum search feature is working correctly, so all is good.

Use of the site limiter on the external Google search is a great alternative, though a little more typing.

I'm not familiar with what Donna linked. Is it something you set up, or it it linked in FiberglassRV somewhere?
