 Hi guys, found a definite bug on BP today.

 It occurs when you use the search bar at the top of the page in the
 Default BP theme and ALL other themes aswell.

 I am referring to the search box that enables you to choose, 'members',
 'groups' or 'forums' from the drop down menu next to it.

 I'll give you an example.
 My site can be found at www.sharespeak.co.uk for reference.

 Firstly I go to this search box and type in a search.
 Eg. I want to search for the group called 'PXS' on my site.

 I type in 'PXS' select 'groups' from the drop down and submit it.

 This returns the page of results to me, where I see the group called,
 'PXS' - so far so good.

 However when looking at the page URL, I now see that my search term is
 tagged onto th eend of it, eg. http://sharespeak.co.uk/groups/?s=pxs

 If I now use the 'Groups Directory' search box on the very page I am
 currently on (not the drop down search as used in the first instance', no
 matter what I search for, it only returns the same results as my initial
 search. So if I search for the group named, 'Moni' on my site, I still
 just get the 'PXS' result from earlier.

 I am sure this is to do with the fact that the search term is tagged onto
 the end of the URL. It is as if you are locked into that page. The search
 refreshes but it can't actually search the rest of the groups.

 If you just go into the groups directory first of all and start searching,
 you can do as many different ones as you like with success as the URL
 stays as simply the site address and /groups. Nothing gets tagged on.

 I hope you understand the issue as it's a little hard to explain but
 please let me know if you need any more details. I imagine this is a
 simple fix and hopefully can be addressed in a new release.

 Kindest Regards
 Ross Grant.
