Parsing and Permalink Issue with Global Site Search

Hi

1) If I run a search for 'surfboard' at the following URL

http://tradr.com/site-search/

It only displayed 3 results.

I know there are hundreds of posts about surfboards. Do the google custom search in the top bar!

How can I confirm this?

2) Parsing: It looks like indexer does not process shortcodes, therefore posts made of plugin derivative content is only showing shortcodes in the search results.

3) Permalink: If I search for surfboard it brings up http://tradr.com/site-search/ as the url. with surfboard results.

If i THEN search g-shock it brings up http://tradr.com/site-search/surfboard with g-shock results. this is a bit weird.

4) In the project page info it says i can move the site-search to another slug. Can I move it to the header of my theme like where I currently have Google Custom Search running?

Cheers,

Johnny
