    WordPress Search Feature Isn't Working

    Here is the page in question. Is there a permissions problem? How would I correct this if this is the case?

    I see you're using 2.6.1 Are you using a "search" plugin that may be broken, or the core search?

    It is the core search. I have not added anything to it, nor have I modified that portion of the code. That is why I was dumbfound when it was not working properly. Any ideas why?

    I was wondering if it might have something to do with the permalinks, but everything else seems to be working OK.
    I use the sandbox theme and also a "search" plugin, so my mark-up is different and may not provide any clues, but I'll post for comparison anyway.
    HTML Code:
    <li><h2>Search</h2>
    	<form id="searchform" method="get" action="/blog/index.php">
    		<input type="text" name="search" id="search" value="Enter search term..." />
    		<input type="submit" name="searchsubmit" id="searchsubmit" value="Search" />
    	</form>
    </li>
    HTML Code:
    <li id="search" class="widget widget_sandbox_search">
    	<h3 class='widgettitle'><label for="s">Search</label></h3>
    	<form id="searchform" method="get" action="http://www.mittineague.com/blog">
    		<div>
    			<input id="s" name="s" type="text" value="" size="10" tabindex="1" />
    			<input id="searchsubmit" name="searchsubmit" type="submit" value="Find" tabindex="2" />
    		</div>
    	</form>
    </li>
    One thing that would be easy to test is theme compatability. If you temporarily switch to the default theme, is search still broken?

    What is the name of that widget or plugin and where might I find it?

    It's called "Search Meter" http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-meter/
    Is search still broken using the default theme?
