Is there anyplace that shows what threads you have posted in and the message number? I'll look at a topic and think that I have posted in that thread, but can not find my post(s) and the search function doesn't seem to work on usernames. Is there a page i can look at that might say something like:

Ali Bubba and the Keystone Cops - Message #389,100, 204. - 06/06/1900?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I don't think it's 100% done yet, but CR just added a way for users to search for their own posts. If you go to your profile page and scroll down you'll see the part that says "Forum Posts" is now orange. Click on that on your own Profile and you'll see a list of your posts. However, as mentioned, it seems to not be completely done so might not show them all--When I checked mine the other day only a few of my many posts came up, but I just looked a minute ago, and now it shows them all!

So, that's a start!

Note that this only works for looking up your own posts--you can't look up others.

Thanks for the quick reply! I don't need to look up other's posts. Just my own.

Within a given thread it seems to work better than the provided link on your profile (again, only for your own username) if you use the right search pattern like this:



No spaces around the colon, and make sure you put it in the correct search box, not the general one at the top of every page.
