Like the title says. I haven't been to the forums lately so I might have missed something.

They removed it because it was crap.

 

Use google and search: Site:LinusTechTips.com "Enter what you want to search here"

This has to be at least the 20th thread about this...

As @TheKDub has already said, the search function was broken, so it was removed. 

Just use "search: linustechtips.com [search phrase]"

I've actually bookmarked https://www.google.com.au/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&rlz=1C1GIWA_enAU604AU604&ion=1&espv=2&es_th=1&ie=UTF-8#q=site:+linustechtips.com+ so it's easy to search LTT.

No problem, just mentioning that this is has been asked multiple times, and to me is getting repetitive.

Use the google searcher Site=LinusTechTips.com/Search=(Your Search Here)

The search is actually still there, it's just commented out in the html. In Chrome If you "Inspect element" then look for <div id="branding"> then <div class="main_width"> then under <div id="logo"> Edit as HTML and delete the comment marks ( <!-- ). Not exactly fast but if you want to use the forum search then I guess you have that option.

Just like "can my pc run gta V?" :D

Hope the feature will be fix and back very soon. Dont understand why it would take long to fix it. Unless theres no website design oriented person in LMG.

I'm sure it will be put back in when IPB4 of the forum is complete.

I don't think that would work as well as "site: linustechtips.com [search term]" simply because you are searching for LTT's URL and the search term, and not searching for a term within LTT (if that makes sense).
