Searching the entire site
All pages and files on the club's web site are
public so any search engine can be used to find information on the site.
However, very recent information (last few days) may not be found.
How search engines work is not obvious; click
here for a brief
explanation. You can use any commercial search engines (e.g., Google, Yahoo,
Bing, ...) to search for content but unless you do something special, any search will examine
virtually all pages on the web and you are likely to get lots of hits on
other sites. You can focus your search to specific sites in
You can use the search engine configured to search
only the ww2hc site. This is accessible from the home page (upper
right) or under
Help, FAQ & Search. This is a custom version of Google; more
information can be found
If you add the site address, e.g., www.ww2hc.org,
to your search criteria, you will only get hits for those pages that
contain your other criteria and are either in the ww2hc domain or
the domain address is also on the particular page. Normally,
this is a process that yields pretty good results but you will get
the odd hit that is not quite what you wanted (another site
referencing the ww2hc site).
Another approach is to tell the search engine to
search only a particular site. Each major search engine
supports that feature in a different way.
Google: adding "site:ww2hc.org" without the
quotes to any search will return hits from just the club's web site
Yahoo: Yahoo has an advanced search
capability that supports searching particular sites. Above the
normal search box, click on More and then on advanced search. In
the advanced search window, fill in the normal search words and then in
the Site/Domain area click the "only search in this domain" line and
fill in the clubs domain: www.ww2hc.org
Bing: Bing has an advanced search
capability similar to Yahoo.
