All that is because of the switch from the yahoo search to google's :/

Can it be changed for the codex? Depends on how that was coded into the skin template for the wiki. It SHOULD be possible to switch the codex search back to the ... codex search and not the default WP one. That said, that it was flipped so fast to the google search from the yahoo one implies it's a template outside of the wiki skin. Very much an Otto question as he's the wiki master.

I use the Special:Search page too and bookmarked it :/

Then I found 8 pages open at the end of my tab queue. NOT COOL. Let's kill this as soon as possible. Breaks web standards and causes more work.

It causes problems as it doesn't seem to prioritize Codex content and often brings up unhelpful support discussions and WordPress Plugins when all I need is to look something up.
