Searching within one's own posts on this site SOLVED

Post by WHVW »

Hi All:

Just a quick question about searches on this site: I want to search just my posts. I could find many other search options, but not that. It's got to be there.

Does anybody know how to search just within your own posts?

Thanks

Click the Advanced search cog in the upper right of the forum window. First line is for your search words, below is a line for Author (put WHVW there) and choose to add other criteria if wanted.

Go to search advance settings - the cog wheel.

Put in the search query & add your username in the search for author box..

You could also do this by heading to your own profile. Check for the option on the bottom where it lets you search your own posts or threads.
