Searching the the NFED

The NFED uses Google Custom Search for a full site wide search, but also has built in dedicated search facilities for the Classifieds, Directory, Events & Help.

Google Custom Search
The Google Custom Search will search the entire site. There are Google sponsored ads displayed at the top of the results, which are not connected with the NFED, the NFED results are shown below. The Google search works very well, but is only updated when Google crawls the site, so the very latest updates may not be included & some results may no longer be available.


NFED Search Engines
The main sections; Classifieds, Directory, Event Diary & Help each have their own built in search engines. Each will only search that specific category & are updated in real time. New posts will be shown, expired posts will not.
