E2 Search is that box titled Search at the top right (or left, depending on your theme) of the node display screen with the options "Near Matches" and "Ignore Exact" near it.

Google hasn't yet completely spidered E2, but it's getting there. The following code will perform a fulltext search for you. Feel free to use it on your own page.

<!-- START E2 search -->
<script language="JavaScript">
function AddNegations() {
    if (document.e2search.q.value == '') {
        return false;
    else {
	document.e2search.q.value += " -duplicates -\"nothing found\" -findings";
        return true;
<FORM name=e2search method=GET 
         onsubmit="return AddNegations();">
<IMG SRC=""><br>
<INPUT TYPE=text name=q size=30 maxlength=255 value="">
<INPUT type=submit name=sa VALUE="E2">
<INPUT type=hidden name=cof
	   VALUE="T:#000000;       LW:229;
              ALC:#cccc99;     L:;
              LC:#003366;      LH:40;
              BGC:#ffffff;     AH:left;
              VLC:#7f7f66;     GL:0;
<INPUT type=hidden name=domains    value="everything2.com">
<INPUT type=hidden name=sitesearch value="everything2.com">
<!-- END E2 search -->
I have found that the best way for me to search E2 is using a modified version of AU’s Google button. It is easy to use and very fast. Upon clicking the button, your browser will prompt you for your search keywords. The script will then search only E2 (-findings –“nothing found”) and display the results 100 per page using Google as the engine. This will make searching quick and relinquish some much needed bandwidth for E2!

1.       Create a bookmark/favorite of this page.
2.	Find the bookmark/favorite and right click and slect properties.
3.	Copy the code below into the URL field.
4.	Rename the bookmark/favorite ‘E2 Search’.
5.	Place the button in a convenient place (I have dragged mine to my links bar).
6.	Search with quickness.

With Line Breaks (remove all spaces when copying)


Continuous Code

Note: These instructions apply to IE, however the script should also work in Netscape.
