    I'm having significant trouble trying to search the forums. Either nothing is returned, despite using word I know are in the forum, or after being returned a "search again" page, I get some sort of mysql database error.

    Anybody else having this problem. I'm using Firefox.

    The main utility of these forums in the past as been the ability to search for help.

    Yes. It's broke, and no one knows when it WON'T be broke. Huge pink sticky at the top of the forum goes into some detail on how to search while it's broke.

    Considering the MAJOR functionality that search brings to a support forum/wiki, I am surprised there hasn't been a temporary patch/link/form.

    Podz's sticky-post, while helpful, is overly cumbersome.

    It also doesn't bode well for bbPress - or is this a WP forum issue?

    It's a forum issue I believe and has wide roots.
    Matt is aware of the various problems that beset the forums right now and I believe that this will all be addressed.

    We'd all like it fixed :)
