Ok, I have read
and I know that there are search boxes at
to search webmasterworld.

These search boxes do not work for me!
The robots file at
tells Yahoo/MSN/Google not to index with:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

So all search boxes on:
do not work.

So how do I search webmasterworld.com?

go into your control panel and copy/paste the code for one of the search engines found here [webmasterworld.com]

This will put a search box for the search engine you chose just under the top WebmasterWorld banner that will allow you to serch either WebmasterWorld or the web (www).

Are you saying you're getting no results back when using searchform.cgi? All three search options on that page are returning results and working perfectly from what I can see. The full explanation about how the scripted robots.txt works is included at the top of that file, with links to the source code.
