Humm... I don't use the default theme. But normally it is in the top near and labelled "Quick links" and under that menu is the search button. Otherwise, there is a search text and button in the top left corner. But you might need someone with the default theme to tell you.

Anyone???

The search button is second from the left for me. I assume this is the default theme, since I've never changed it. I'm familiar with the "Quick Links" menu from other fora, but I don't have it on this one.

I guess it's just a feature turned off for new users. Currently, I can also see Search, Member, The team that were not there before + if I click on New posts I actually see them instead of an error message.

I was able to see the search function when I first registered, but not anymore. None of my contact messages have been answered either. What would be the harm in letting new users use the search function? I don't understand.

Search is bundled with other things which could be harmful. Just keep participating and you'll see it soon enough. Although you might be better off just using Google's site keyword.

I use a board style called prosilver, and I can see 'search' under Quick links, but there is also a search field in the fat blue line with "phpBB..."

Why? It's ugly and less easily readable.
