Drupal 7.

I'm thinking it must be in the htaccess file, as I just went live, and suddenly if I search for something like "two words" it ends up searching for "two%20words" and obviously I get no results.

Same goes for quotes, etc. Any ideas?

How do you know you are searching for two%20words? %20 is the percent-encoded value for the space character as mandated by RFC 3986, so it is absolutely correct that this value appears in the address bar of the browser. – Oswald Oct 2 '11 at 18:39

That wasn't entirely it - it was escaping with a %25 and passing it to the search form, causing no results. It was an issue with my htaccess, it's fixed.
