    I have a lot of threads I started on AAC. The numbers are even higher than post count suggests, since I am active in off topic where posts don't count.

    The search feature will let me search for posts I've made, but not threads I've started.

    Suggestions?

    Maybe "Search titles only" ?

    Good thought, but it didn't work. Selecting "Display results as theads" helps, but you get every threa you posted in.

    Yep, that's the one. But it shows everyone, not just one thread starter.

    It was an option on the old package, but seems to be missing here.

    Hello,

    Did you give your username in the "Posted by Member" bar?

    Did you also try this link in your profile?
    Find all threads by Bill_Marsden

    It looks like that link is restricted to 200 threads

    Bertus

    PS I have stretched the option to 1000 threads, now all your threads are shown with the link given
    You have posted 625 threads upto now

    That is closer, but it doesn't restrict the search to one forum.

    I found what I was looking for several days ago, but I would like to be able to navigate here better.

    I would like to revive this old thread. We really need the thread started by feature. I am looking for an old thread I started but can't remember the context.

    This was a really useful feature, I don't know why the new forum would not have it.

    OK so how do you search threads posted by someone else? Do you use threads posted by me as a model and just modify the URL?

    Didn't you know? It is all about me!

    Seriously, not a clue. I would love the capability though.
