searching on the forum

Hi all
It's been a long time since I have been on the forum.  Have had a lot of success in the past so thank you :)  However new job plus the new style forum (sorry I still don't like it) has meant I have stayed away until now.
I am still having problems searching on the forum and wondered if anyone has any tips?  If I click on the search at either the top or bottom of the competition posts it says 'search competitions time' but I type in my criteria and every time it returns results from all the MSE forums.  Can anyone help please?

Many thanks
