These two faults both appeared on the evening of 22/09 so are probably related:

1) Every forum appears to have over 132,000 pages - a clear fault. I suspect this is the total number of pages for the whole site.

2) When you click on the search button and search for something the "search subcategories" button (until yesterday) was always deselected by default, and remained deselected until you selected it. On the first search, it is now showing as selected, but the results returned initially exclude subcategories. This is obviously a fault as the results do not match the search screen.
If you then click on the search button on the search screen again (for example, you might have edited the search term), the results returned now include subcategories. You have to specifically deselect subcategories every time you want to search. This is confusing users. A return to what was happening before yesterday is what is really needed.
