Remove separate search page and put a search textbox directly in the top bar
Would it be possible to change the search so that you don't end up on a separate page? It feels a bit clunky to not be able to search directly. Replace the search button with a text box for the query. Maybe it could be a separate search page for more advanced searching with more options and explanations, but in that case, also have a regular search textbox on the regular pages.
I don't like to say "like on the SE network", but that pretty much summarizes it. :)
It could be the case that I just have not become used to it yet.
Thanks for reporting this, and sorry for the long time you waited to have us update this post.
We fixed this well back in December 2020 (according to the Recent feature changes post: https://meta.codidact.com/posts/39539). As you can tell from the hash at the bottom of the site, we have definitely deployed that change by now and the search box now no longer requires you to visit another page to access.
