I'm obviously not saying it's trivial, to make Search back on tracks, after having modified the current framework's databases as, if it was, we probably had that feature back since many time.
I don't like to be too much finicky but, as @nihylum de and @EyeR showed, a Search feature was present in the original framework (they also, 'cause of their "limited access", had not be able to make it working, by the way) so, you can be "formally correct" stating "There has never been a search function on this forum since it went live in December", flying over the other features which have been removed (HTML digested text editing ones, links, paragraph blocks etc. etc.: you can see here a couple of examples), which is OT to mention here, but which have their own threads too.
Thanks also to have pointed me to the right threads about CoC, I'll partecipate for sure.
By the way, as you're a so accurate person, how you judge the presence, into a regional language chapter, of a post written in a "foreign" non-regional language and without providing the related (regionalised) translation? I mean: am I free to enter, just to say, russian regional chapter, posting in italian without at least trying to use some translator to provide regional text? (this is still OT, here, but following your previous post: I'll take that as reference when I'll post into CoC's thread so to avoid creating a whole new thread).
maybe you failed to notice this post, FYI.
