Hello,
I would like to post another feature request, but there is nothing to search
inside newsgroups before posting double requests.
At the moment, the Search link just searches (with Google sdearch :\) in the
entire web. Not really useful.
Thank you.

Except for a few inapropriate and silly advertisements that Google inserts as
the first few entries, I see a good list of POV-ray-only newsgroup links when I
use the Search bar (at least when using the search page's website portal.) But I
usually find what I am looking for within the first 2 pages of the search; I
have not looked past that, to see if there are links that have nothing to do
with POV-ray.

Or you could just use Google and:

your search terms site:povray.org

which will restrict all search results to povray.org

I'm sure people with greater familiarity might know the syntax for searching
only within a specific group, say pbi

The website admin should be able to restrict the search bar to just the 
povray.org domain with a little tweaking.

Hello,

Yep, maybe by embedding the "site:povray.org" terms, as suggested by Bald Eagle.

But yet -- and I could find it by myself. I'm brainless, sometimes... -- using
any web search that can use these terms, too. DuckDuckGo can do too, for
example.

Well, if Google wouldn't keep changing its search APIs that would be 
easy. The search site restriction used to work...
