Our fast new Yahoo! search

yahoo.jpgAt last this site has a fast search engine. A Yahoo search can be found at the upper left corner of every page of rogerebert.com itself (not on this blog). The top line searches by movie title and performs almost instantly, although it demands an exact title: "G.I. Joe," for example, not "G.

To search the site in other ways, go to "Advanced Search," To search the blog entries on "Roger Ebert's Journal, there is a Search box at the upper right of every blog page. This will search by words or phrases, and, yes, will find you all the entries of any individual poster, although this takes a little time because of the millions of words involved. Comments are open on this new feature.
