PLEASE NOTE: You need WordPress 3.5 or higher AND bbPress 2.3 or higher for this plugin in order to work! So, just update your install!
Note for legacy installs: If you have an install with older versions you can still use version 1.1.0 or 1.2.0 of this plugin, just download from here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbpress-search-widget/developers/ (Just beware of updates then, until you upgraded your whole install :)
Note for own translation/wording: For custom and update-secure language files please upload them to
/wp-content/languages/bbpress-search-widget/ (just create this folder) - This enables you to use fully custom translations that won't be overridden on plugin updates. Also, complete custom English wording is possible with that, just use a language file like
bbpress-search-widget-en_US.mo/.po to achieve that (for creating one see the tools on "Other Notes").
