    How can one search these forums. I read the FAQ, which tells me to type in the search box, but I do not have one to type in. So again, How do I search?

    Looks like they've disabled search. It's still phpbb, so you would typically find the search form here.

    However, even if you're logged in you get a message about not being permitted to use search.

    Kinda makes it hard to find solutions to problems, eh?

    Exactly the same proplem here. You will also get the message stating that Search is disabled by clicking on the "View Your posts" at the top beside User Control Panel.

    Maybe if enough people post that there is a problem, somebody will get around to fixing it? It's really a pain not being able to search or even follow your own posts...

    Yes I've posted about other problems with search before! (not that I can find any of my old posts now due to the issue at hand).

    Since the upgrade at first I thought the search feature was not working but then it appeared that it was only indexing new posts. After someone (it might have been me) posting about this it was fixed a few days later and search was fine. Then for some reason it was removed.

    Seacrhing the forum is useful.

    Can an admin let us know what is going on?

    The search function is available here

    http://www.3cx.com/support/

    I am not sure what is so difficult with going to that page and entering the search string there?

    I can tell you what is so difficult with going to that page. The fact that you have to leave the forums in order to do it. Also, the FAQs are misleading. I can't see what is so difficult about giving permissions to the forum users.

    Right click on the link and open in new tab is difficult???

    I have already said in previous posts its because PHPBB has a bug in version 3 whereby the search function crashes the forum

    Anyway i have re enabled it temporarily assuming that a recommended mod to the php.ini file of phpbb3 fixes the search issue. If its down in a days time we will disable search again....

    Thank you for turning the search function back on. It appears to be working well now, and at least this way we have the other link if you have to turn it off again. I don't mind having to use the other site, just needed to know it was there...
