Whenever I wanted to use the searchbar, I only got a server error in return. Guess searching isn't working for anyone? And the topics read thing isn't working either, but Gahars already caught that one.
Well that's because you're an admin. What about the rest of us? We don't have special privileges like you do. (I'm teasing; duh)
I believe this has been fixed for several days; I know I searched for some stuff and I found it.
