We're very much in progress on the whole search thing for the site. We're in process of setting up a new search system, which will work on the whole site, not just one piece of it.
Currently, the search for the HUBB uses the new search engine, and is primarily accessible from the link on the very top right of the page - just under the Touratech logo when in the HUBB. When you get the results, you will also have access to a link under the results that gives you more detailed options if you didn't find what you wanted.
The rest of the site uses the OLD search engine, which still works fine on the old static pages. It's accessible in the SAME place - when NOT on a HUBB page.
Eventually it will be all one engine and much simpler.
Currently as Sophie-Bart notes, there are links to a search engine in a couple of places on the left menu - depending on where you want to search - the HUBB or the rest of the site.
As for a link on the Quicklinks tab - nice to know someone uses it - I was thinking of removing it because I never use it! So yes - good idea, thanks! I'll add search to there asap.
Hope that clarifies it a little, and sorry for the confusion - please be patient, we're getting there!
Seek, and ye shall find.
