Yup we are just trying it out to see if members use it and like it. The reason I like it is because I think it searches much better than the built in PHPBB search option which might allow you to find things on ozzu easier.

I am not exactly sure on the best location for it yet. I would love to hear recommendations.

I agree. It will probably not be in the position it is at right now because of that.

Just letting you know that the Google Search Tool is only on the Ozzu Search Page now. You can use either that or the built in PHPBB search function.

IMHO, the google one kinda sticks off, maybe setting it's background colour the same as ozzus?

Yeah we have thought of that idea as well, however, it is unclear in the Google Adsense TOS if I can change the premade code they tell me to copy and paste to use it. I will need to contact them and find out if I am allowed to change the code.

I don't think you guys understand. The mods have discussed this in detail with Bigwebmaster. The TOS at Google is unclear as to whether the "appearance" of the search box may be modified or not. If Bigwebmaster gets an answer from Google that it may be modified for appearance, then I can be pretty sure he will do it as all of us are in favor of having it on all pages.

As the TOS currently stands there is no indication that it can or cannot be modified. The results page can be to a degree, but the form itself is unclear. That is the reason for the hesitation and delay.
