Add search to the Help Center

I'm looking for specific information in the Help Center. (In this case, I want to learn more about comments, but I don't think there's an article for them just yet.) One useful tool on many help pages is search. But that doesn't seem possible with Codidact.

Something that might work (given 0 knowledge of the code) would be to make help articles first-class posts in their own category. That way people could search for help using the regular search tools. By default, you'd probably exclude the Help category so that ordinary users searching for "snake oil" won't be confused by the help article on searching. ;-)

Help pages are post type "4" (HelpDoc) and policy pages such as the ToS are "PolicyDoc", post type 3. In theory, the search help indicates that you should be able to search for them using that the post type syntax, but it doesn't appear to actually work.
