PostPosted: Mon 17 Feb 2014, 22:48    Post subject:  Alternatives to wellminded search  

The puppy google search at http://www.wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html has been inaccessible for a couple of days. Does anyone know what's up?

Alternatives I'm aware of are the forum search and http://pupsearch.weebly.com, but I don't get along with them very well. Other suggestions?

Even though wellminded.com is down, I can still search for Puppy content on this page http://www.google.com/cse?cx=015995643981050743583%3Aabvzbibgzxo&q#gsc.tab=0

You can search forum from this page (choose from drop-down list), I might add others.

http://puppy.b0x.me/psearch.html

EDIT: Added osme more sites in drop-down list. Will look into how to make it search all of them at once.

Great Minds..........................

I have a modified version of psearch that includes a file search option
in the drop down menu.

Will be adding more sites which BigMike had on his web page that sadly got wiped by whoever hosted it.

Hi.

dejan555's "Teh" site does work, but the other one seems to be down at the moment.

As an alternative, you may already know that most search engines will do a
Puppy forum search if you include http://murga-linux.com/puppy or simply
murga-linux.com/puppy after your key word(s).


For example, if you are looking for fonts on info.com (http://www.info.com), type
Quote:
fonts http://murga-linux.com/puppy

and you get
http://www.info.com/searchw?qkw=fonts+http://murga-linux.com/puppy&qcat=web&q=&qhqn=&KW=

or for Puppy Precise 5.4 on dogpile.com (http://www.dogpile.com), type
Quote:
Precise 5.4 murga-linux.com/puppy

and you get
http://www.dogpile.com/info.dogpl.rss/search/web?fcoid=417&fcop=bottomnav&fpid=2&q=Precise+5.4+murga-linux.com%2Fpuppy&ql=&timestamp=1392737294687

For some reason, duckduckgo (https://duckduckgo.com) doesn't seem to yield
enough results with this trick. (Maybe it's just me.)

I hope that helps. BFN.

PS. Credit should go to Puppy forum member and Puppy developer argolance, from
which I learned this trick.

I probably relied too much on wellminded as I break things almost daily, hence the panic reaction! Thanks for the search suggestions.

Since I now have at least 4 good alternatives, I changed the title of the thread to something more useful.

(tlchost had a typo, now fixed)

also see my signature for a Puppy Files Search Engine (Pup file Search) - this is not as good as the one Geoffrey posted, but it does search all puppy ibiblios repos, and many other 3rd party repos, such as mine, and others like smokeys and so on ...

In Firefox, I use the Search Site 4.2 add-on - it adds a right-click context menu selection to search the currently viewed website for any cursor-highlighted word(s), and adds it's own clickable icon to Firefox's dedicated (second, search engine selectable) search bar. Simple, fast & convenient!

Bit concerned over the loss of the website Wognath mentioned in the OP. However, while I can't enter the site, the Firefox wellminded Puppy Linux search engine is still operating without interruption (?) I'm using FF25.0.

PostPosted: Sat 22 Mar 2014, 15:20    Post subject: New wellminded Puppy Linux Search  

As wellminded.com is no more I have created another one based on the original. The only difference being that the app search covers more Puppy sites than the original.

Why not bookmark http://wellminded.net63.net/ as your new Puppy Linux search engine.
