    Apparently the search of the forums doesn't work. I put:

    AdvWidget

    into the search field on the page:

    http://wordpress.org/support/

    and pressed the Search button.

    It replied:

    We couldn't find anything!
    Please try a different search.

    Yet, I had already created a forum entry with that very keyword in the title and body:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/parismmacom-advwidget?replies=1

    and when I use Google it finds it:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=site:wordpress.org/support/%20AdvWidget

    Any idea why Google can find it but WordPress search can not find it?

    We know that the search on here is clunky at best. The relevant devs know about it too. It's on their very long ToDo list. In the meantime, use Google. Most others do :-)
