Hi Yardee, I just did a search in the C&S forum and it worked fine. What is happening when you search?

I'm also having the same problem, in the hot deals forum. Win10 using Chrome.

I've tried the following:
Logged off
uBlock Origins off
Edge Browser
Internet Explorer Browser
Using another computer

The search box still does not appear. I don't know what redesign or classic means. I've never changed my theme or anything as far as I remember.

Same problem. The "Search Forum" button is visible in "Hot Deals", but when I click on it nothing happens. No box opens for me to type what I want to search for. "Forum Tools" button is not working either. I tried Chrome, Firefox and IE. No luck on any of them.

I'm not seeing the search box either. I've been trying to use it in the Hot Deals forum but when I click the Search this Forum button nothing happens. I've tried Firefox, Chrome, Win 7, Linux, mobile, desktop and still it never works. In most cases the browsers have absolutely no script or ad blocking installed either. Something happened in the past week that appears to have broken it.

Welp right as I say that it starts working. Since I had to login to post my last comment (#11) I'm wondering if it's tied to either the login or the fact that when I login I'm taken to the classic version. Yet another reason to love the classic version!

I use the 'Search This Forum' button often and I'm hoping SD can fix this issue soon too.
I tried changing to 'Classic View' and the button still did not work.
I use a Chromebook.
