Search by subject/content?

Is there any way to search the forums by the subject line, or better the content of the posts? Is this not supported by phpBB?

edit: I meant to post this in Technical. Mods, feel free to move.

The search function was disabled a while ago to "improve" the server. They said it would come back, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen until we change servers... and we don't have a timeframe on that yet.

Supported, yes, but far too server-intensive. Given all the other problems with the game and forums relating to server access, they chose to remove the search function for now.

Once server issues have been resolved (hopefully within weeks!), they will review whether it and other features can now be restored.
