You may have other problems that have not come to light yet
I raised the problem; part of it has been resolved (1) and the other part remains (2), Do you have a solution for it?

I haven't managed to incorporate it into the native search as yet although 2.6.0 will add Google Search to the Advanced Search Options.

2.5.0 is in the queue awaiting validation and 2.6.0 will be released shortly thereafter.

To change the language the results appear in you need to have your own custom search. Go to:-

Google Webmaster Tools>Other Rescources>Custom Search

... and thanks for the translation. I'll add it to my site

I got it to work short of. What kind of settings did you use?

Because when i made a new one, the results would show up in a popup instead of in the forum it self, and i only got 4 results instead.

To have the results show in the results page you need to set the search as the screenshot

I don't know why you are only getting 4 returns on the search. Maybe that is all the results for that search? Just check through the Webmaster settings. They take a little getting used to, but most things are configurable.

From Webmaster Tools
Too many or too few results

If you're seeing more results than you expect, make sure you've specified that you want to search only the sites you provide, not the entire web, in your Custom Search Engine control panel.

If you are not seeing a particular result that you expect:
  • Make sure that you have included the result or the pattern matching the result in your Custom Search Engine. Beware of spelling mistakes!
  • Make sure the page you expect to see is in the Google index. A simple way of checking is to do a search on Google with the site: operator along with a few words on that page as a search query. For more information about how Google crawls and indexes pages, all of our resources for site owners can be found at Google's Webmaster Central.
If that doesn't help PM me your Custom Google Search ID and I'll have a play and see if I can figure out whats wrong
