You need to use the "search this forum ...." box which is at the bottom of the page, I agree that the placement isn't optimal and that the search box would be more useful if it was context aware:
- if on the forum home page search all forums
- if on a sub-forum parent home page (ex Kexi has multiple sub forums) search all the parent's sub-forums
- if on a sub-forum  page search that sub-forum (or maybe all related sub-forums)
- if on a thread search that thread
