Google “Site” Search and Maps

Hello firebase116 members and guests.

I wanted to take a second to let you all know that I added “Google Site Search” to the webpage.  It’s on the top of the sidebar on the right.

Just put in your query and click the Google Search button.  It will open a ‘regular’ Google page with the results.  You’ll know the familiar Google interface.  One thing I really liked was that on the left side of the Google result page is Images that basically pull up every image on firebase116.

Also, from now on, whenever there is an address in a post or a page, I will embed Google Maps into the post or page.  Like this:

Google MapsGet Directions

Vietnam Veteran’s of America Chapter 116
The Leominster Veteran’s Center
100 West Street  
Leominster, MA 01453

Clicking on the red balloon will produce a popup box telling about the location and will offer “Directions“, clicking on the highlighted “Directions” will extend an “A” to “B” location your just need to fill in “A” and click the “Get Directions” button.  You’ll also see an offer to “Print Directions“.

Feel free to email me if you have any problems, comments or suggestions about firebase116.org.
