Enable search for all users in Drupal
One of the first things you'll probably want to tackle after installing Drupal relates to the search function. You'll notice that when you login you have a nice search option but when you logout that search box vanishes. Frustrating... here's how to enable for all users, which as it turns out is quite a trivial task.
With a fresh Drupal install the search function is disabled by default for all users apart from the Administrator role.
1. Login to your Drupal admin interface and go to the menu: People -> Permissions
2. Enable Search -> Use Search for Anonymous users and save.
