FreewaySearch; The Better Way

In my early days of using Freeway, I had lots of questions, which meant I spent the majority of my time searching for answers. Answer-hunting was not very easy, as Freeway's documentation is spread across the web in small bits and pieces.

You have the "official" documentation in the Using Freeway and Freeway Reference guides but this required opening the PDF's and searching, which was FAR too much work for my taste. Of course, you could just Google it! However, this too did not work well either. (Imagine the results for "Freeway Rollover"!). Then, you have the wonderful Freewaytalk which, sadly, lacks a good search feature, as you get flooded in the results with tons of re: to each thread. In addition, there are lots of other tidbits of information scattered across the webosphere.

Then, I had an idea…

Build a custom search engine that only searches Freeway-relevant sites! Hence, FreewaySearch was born!

You can find it at freewaysearch.calebgrove.com

I'm Caleb Grove

Yep, that's me. I'm a 17 year old web unicorn and own OnRamp Web Design. My skill base is quite broad, though my real focus lies in UX and UI design for the web. When it comes to designs, I'm a perfectionist, scooting 1 pixel at a time.

My main blog captures all my web-related thoughts that exceed 140 characters. Anson S is my personal blog, where I pander in politics and religion. You can tweet me on Twitter at @SirCalebGrove, circle me on , or friend me on Facebook.

About this site

This is my playground. CalebGrove.com harnesses the power of HTML5 and CSS3. It was built using my web design weapon of choice, Freeway Pro, using a inline flexible system. Responsiveness was hand-coded. The blogs are hosted by Blogger, whose template code was generated by the Blogger actions. Website hosted by GJX Hosting. Creativity provided a disturbed mind, and not much else.

No unicorns where harmed in the making of this website, except through caffeine overdose.
