Do you need a bigger search button?

Can you all see the search button?

The “Q” top right is highlighted and in bold, and from there you can find literally anything on the forum.

Ordinarily it is a complicated job, digging up old forum material via an advanced search page which you can often only access if you are logged in. The majority of users on forums therefore don’t search before asking a question, simply because it is too hard. This perpetuates a cycle of repeat questions.

This search function here has been designed to be super accessible and search deep, producing results as you type, but it is only a great asset, if you see it and think it is easy to use.

How visible and usable is it, in your experience?
