Is there a way of searching the forums here on the BPL website?

The search option at the top of the page doesn't list the forums as one of the searchable options. So far I have been using Google / Yahoo as they often bring up forum posts in their results. If there is a way to search from within the site, i've completely overlooked it!

*** Amendment - Forget the question above, SODS LAW, I've just seen the 'Search Forums' link at the top of the page. I missed it I think because the little blue triangles almost divert the eye to the last few words. However, problem solved. ***

The "Search Forums" feature has enough issues for me that I often use Google with the "site" designator. Someone else on these forums taught me this. I wish I could remember who to give credit to. If you were searching for cuben you would enter "cuben site:www.backpackinglight.com". My browser (Safari) has a Google search field at the top that is very convenient.
