Apart from the fact that the Help Center is still a work in progress, it desperately needs a search function. It would take far less time and be far less frustrating to be able to search for a term and be told it's not there, than to have to read everything that is there trying to figure out whether something has been added yet, only to not be able to find it.

Gladsdotter, I agree with you. We're trying to schedule this in for later this year. :)

A search function through the Help Center is so essential for users, that it's mind boggling that one still doesn't exist. Is this ever going to actually happen?

So we've made some progress on this -- to try and find creative means of getting this built within our limited resources. :) More updates later (hopefully, when it's ready).

terms like "trying" and "hopeful" do not bode well for anything being done.
search in help is SO web 101
