I don’t care that it’s been posted before - I’m planning on making a fossilised fairy, and that link has far better pictures than the ones I saw before. 😊

Um. I used the search function to look for “Fairy”, “Mummified Fairy”, and “Faery”.  None of them showed this story but this link.  Does anyone have the link to the previous story? (And what was the conclusion as to how this was done?):-/

I would LOVE to know how this was put together! :cheese:

Thanks, Smerk!

I have run into the problem before. (Though not having checked the main site, perhaps that would have solved it…) :red:

We now return you to your regularly scheduled hoaxings…... :cheese:

Not having the Forum’s search function look at the Main Page is a bit of a snag for a lot of people who are unaware of its limits, though.  Is there any easy way to modify it so that it will search the entire website?

Well… one would hope that new members would of checked out the Main Site (even a little) before signing up to the forums.

A lot of the members come here via Search Engines. Some may never know of the main page to be honest. The 2 are almost independent.

There is but one link, linking the forums to the main page…. and really, considering the human nature, one will move forward, not back.

Yeah, I know that a lot of people will show up here, spend a while chatting on the Forum, and them be totally surprised when it is mentioned that there is a whole further section to the MoH.  Even with the two links to it at the top of every page.

Museum of Hoaxes >  Forum Home >  Hoax Forum >  Hoaxes >  Thread

Considering people (in general), coming onto the forums and even signing up…. clicking on the first link would be oblivious to people. Some people just feed on the word ‘Forum’.

The image of the MOH, so called ‘Icon’, would coax an individual to even hover their mouse over it?

Think big, think outside the box that is in a bigger box. 😊

You can use Google to search the site. On Google, if you go to “advanced search” you can enter http://www.museumofhoaxes.com into the field “search within a site or domain”.

You can achieve the same thing in the regular Google search field by appending site:www.museumofhoaxes.com to the search term.

For example, entering

fairy site:www.museumofhoaxes.com

in the regular Google search field will return only hits that are on the MOH server.

Look at the menu items across the top of the main page.  There’s hoax photo quizzes, top 100 April Fools, gullibility tests, etc.
