In case you might have missed it (and many have!), the iNaturalist website has a header search functionality, which is now (May 8, 2020) open by default when you sign in.
The search box will stay open for the rest of your session, unless you close it. Many people go to Projects, Places, and Users pages to perform searches, but to me the header search is much quicker.
The header search returns results in four major categories:
When you start typing in the search field, iNaturalist will display matches from those four categories. For example, let’s look at the results after entering
Malaysia and Singapore have a map marker icon, as they are places, and taxa, users, and projects have their respective icons next to them, with gray text to help you discern what they are.

View Observations for Butterflies of Singapore leads to https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?project_id=2310 and
About leads to https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/butterflies-of-singapore
