hi i have wordpress and buddypress installed and i wanted to be able to search through forum posts, blog posts and other info all over the site.

i found Search Engine (Wordpress Plugin) and installed it. after a brief indexing process i was able to perform all of my search requests but the problem is that when this plugin is enabled and i try to search for something inside the wp-admin, there are no results. when i turn the plguin off the wp-admin search runs. i also tried google search plugin but the outcome was the same. how can i keep my search plugin and the normal plugin work together? thanks

This plugin is marked as "beta version currently in development", I wouldn't use it on live site and it probably makes little sense to try fixing it or anything before release. Send your feedback to developer so he is aware of issue. – Rarst Oct 11 '10 at 8:25
thanks, so is there another plugin that i can use? we want a plugin that will search thourgh all of the blogs, forum messages and everything and show the search results combined. – peroxide Oct 19 '10 at 8:38
if you want to exclude admin area search functions from the plugin's scope, the answer is probably just adding a conditional if (!is_admin()) at the proper point in the plugin's source... – goldenapples Nov 4 '10 at 17:31

I've solved it by using this tutorial: Creating The sitewide global/unified search Page for your Buddypress Theme (28 Apr 2010; Buddy Dev)
