Blogs directory search not working

We installed blogs directory this morning and it is listing the blogs as it should. However whenever we attempt to use the search field it redirects to a page not found.

Any idea what may be cause this? A step that we missed maybe. Also it seems odd to me that the search form submits to /blogs/search. A page that doesn't exist. However even if I create a search page the search field just returns 0 response and redirects to that newly create search page.

needless to say the documentations doesn't say creating a search page is necessary. A quick response on this would be appreciated.
