I think you could use a search box for each forum. That way you don't have to go through all 25 or 50 pages and someone might not post a duplicate that way. Yes there is a search box at the forum home page, but not on the section pages where it would be most useful.

Just a note, search is not working for me, and I don't know why. When I do a search, the page loads. I see the links on the side and the top, the word search, and the rest of the page, but nothing is under the word Search. There is not even "No Results." I'm using the Linux version of Firefox 20 to access this page, so it is not some Wine related bug.

Its working fine on this side. Try a different browser real quick to see if that makes a difference. I am on Chrome, and it works fine.

I don't have Chrome installed. I used Konquorer with Webkit, and received the same results. Try typing something in search that you know cannot be found. See if it says anything like cannot be found.

There should be something to indicate nothing can be found if nothing is found.

Ah. I get it. So basically, it should say "no results"?

Thats not really a big deal, it will for sure help a bit. Ill open a bug report for it. :) Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

A ticket has been opened for this:

This will be assigned to someone in the near future to implement this.

What exactly are you looking for? If it doesnt show up, its not there. It may have been deleted, or simply not there.

So, if you get no results, there is nothing related to what you are searching for. What was it you wanted (in terms of what you were searching for)?

I have had success with both kinds of setup. A search box is cool because it allows the user to search quickly while the pagination is great for indexing on search engines.

A search box would be great.

I would also appreciate a search box in the Bugs section; at the moment, I don't know how to find if a bug has already been reported.

There is a search box at the top of the forums. Though, I do agree that a search function in the bug section would be nice.

For the bug reports, a feature request already exists:

http://www.playonlinux.com/en/issue-1774.html

However, since it's not clear yet for how long the bug tracker will stay around and be integrated with the repository, I'm not sure it has any kind of priority.
