Searching Forums in BP 1.5

Ok, last thread I am going to start tonight. Trying to figure out how to make the forums more user friendly, and it seems strange that there is no search right their on the forums page in a private group. Anyone find a way to do that? I am also working an issue where members can't even get the Forum Directory page to come up, so I was hoping to find at least a way to add search functionality on that page right there.

Thoughts?

Thanks, David
