I've added a google search to the forum, I think it works better than the built in search engine of the Network54 forum, if people don't like it, then I'll remove it and go back to the old method of searching. Personally I found the network54 search confusing. The google search lists all instances of the word(s) you're looking for, with a little additional text to help you narrow it down.
I've also added a search button to the front page of the main site which will search the main site and I'm currently re-building the schools website, and that will also have its own search system to help people find things more easily. With the schools site I haven't included the main site as only the schools information is required. But the main site will search the schools site and the main site. I hope this isn't too confusing and look forward to hearing what you think of the change?
