Yes it has been a pain and hopefully you have resolved it Aaron, and while we're on the subject - a minor inconvenience is the emoticons do not go where you want them to.............Grrrr.
Put your cursor where you want it to be and it either goes above or below the whole post and then you have to cut and paste it where you actually want it. Say, end or start or mid post.
Or is that just me.
That's a known quirk, and something we're hoping to be able to improve upon in future. Thanks for flagging it as something that is an active bother though.

I've just typed in "Chappers" (without quotes) and clicked the magnifying glass - nothing happens.
I've just typed in "Tony Hancock" (without quotes). Numerous names appeared in a drop-down list while I was typing it in and when "Tony Hancock" appeared in the list, I clicked it and was taken to the official BCG information page.
If I type "Tony Hancock" (without quotes) in the box and click the magnifying glass - nothing happens.
It still seems impossible to locate thread titles or thread content.
Aha! I see what's happened. You're using the global site-search, rather than the forum-specific search. https://www.comedy.co.uk/forums/search/
We hope we'll be able to unify these better in future and provide a much more intuitive, Google-like search experience, but it'd require an expensive software licence that we simply cannot afford at present. Again, any donations would help reach such goals...
As for the magnifying glass, that is intended to be an illustrative icon rather than a button and so isn't clickable. I'm aware it's not hugely clear and will be altering it a little later this year, when we'll be making some changes to the site header.
