Search results page not loading (2 posts)

    I have WordPress and Buddypress. When I have WordPress use the Buddypress Activity page as the front page, I can no longer see search results for WordPress posts. When I search the page refreshes and does not give me the requested search results.

    I have set both my Front page and Post page to different pages.

    I've tried creating a search results page and have it use a template.

    I think the problem could be that the search bar doesn't know the new search results page to send the user to display the results. This is the search code:

    <div class="bigsearch">                    
    
                          <div class="searchr">            
    
                            <form id="searchform" action="<?php echo get_option('home') ?>">            
    
                              <input type="text" name="s" value="Search Reviews & News ...." onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue)this.value='';" onblur="if(this.value=='')this.value=this.defaultValue;" />
    
                              <input type="image" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/space.gif" />            
    
                            </form>          
    
                          </div>

    Any thoughts?

    More specific info to see if anyone can come up with a solution -

    I have WordPress and Buddypress installed.

    Under Settings - Reading - Front page displays - A state page - Front page, I selected the Activity page from Buddypress to be the new homepage. Then I selected Blog for Posts page.

    Now when I try to Search on the website for a blog post that I wrote on WordPress, I get no search results. The page goes to the new Activity homepage and does not return any results. You can try searching for yourself at http://www.stuffwelike.com/blog

    I've tried to create a new page for search results at http://www.stuffwelike.com/searchresults/ I simply cannot get the search form to have the user search inquiry display on this page instead of refresh to the homepage.
