Forums need search function

Please restore the search function to the forums. If I run into a bug or have a question about the game that doesn't appear in the ingame knowledge base, I would like to be able to search these forums to get an answer or a workaround. Without a search function, I just have to hope the info I am looking for is in a sticky, which generally is not the case.

I'm sure other people have posted about this before, but I was unable to find such a post BECAUSE THERE IS NO SEARCH FUNCTION. Restoring search to the forums will help reduce the number of duplicate posts and help players solve their own problems, so please restore the search function as soon as possible.

Thanks

This forum does seem to have a google bot enabled, for other people here that run their own forums like myself they know what im talking about, but its a "profile" that feeds data to google as the easiest explination. You can go to google and type in "SWTOR (QUESTION)" and it will bring up results from these forums because the forums are indexed by google.

I just googled "swtor forums need a search button" and got this thread on the first page.

The search feature is there. But, 90% of the time it does not show up. On a lucky day i can see it.

Unfortunately, Google also has the beta forums archived in their search, so depending on the terms you are searching for, you may get a number of search results for threads that were wiped prior to Early Access.

Just go to revelance on google and change it to the last 30 days. Also i read on another "Search Button" thread just to type in "Site:SWTOR.com (QUESTION)" and it will limit the results to only this site.
