Hello!
Can you try to add a custom code script made by @Ange Tuteur by following these steps?

Go to Admin Panel > Modules > JS codes management > Create a new script

Placement : In all the pages
Code:
        $(function(){
          $(function() {
            var fa_magnifier = document.getElementById('fa_magnifier');
       
            if (fa_magnifier) {
              fa_magnifier.onclick = function() {
                this.parentNode.submit();
              };
            }
          });
        });

Are you searching for words with less than 4 letters?  If yes, it will not return any results.  It will only work on 4 or more letters.  Also it only searches the topic titles.  You can search messages if you have hashtags activated and click the tags box in the search.

I actually tested it on their site as a guest. I typed in part of a topic title such as "Mac OS X" and it still came back with the same error message. Just wanted to share this bit of information for you.

Cheers.

Thank you Jadster for your reply. My problem is different. It appears that certain words doesn't search. Example "Elo" doesn't search. Other key words searches find. Anyways, I will take it for what it is. Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Rick

That's it. Looks like it doesn't search if it is 3 or less letters. Thank you SLGray.
