Hi all,

just signed up for the forum and wanted to read some posts of a member here, but I just can't find an option to search or list all posts of that member.

I see a small list of the latest entries in his/her profile but how can I get all posts?

Is there an option for that?

Thanks
ghostly

phranque should know, and I've never seen such an option. However, using a site:webmasterworld.com in Bing or G with the name of the poster as the next word, you can get a much larger return in your quest.

Well, you'll get all threads a given person has participated in-- assuming someone responded to them by name-- and also all subforums containing a thread started by the person.

One thing that does not work (I've just detoured to test*) is a search for {username} + {current rank as exact text}. That stuff along the left side of each post isn't indexed.

phranque should know

phranque probably does know-- but that's only because he has "Administrator" after his name and therefore has access to all kinds of information that ordinary mortals can't see ;)


* Leading to this unintentionally hilarious thread that I'd forgotten all about [webmasterworld.com]. Watch for long post by tangor which could just as well be (but isn't!) describing my own site.

And what on earth are Feedback Forums?!

lucy24... not playing fair! Using my own words against me! Dang, I use 'em against me with every new client (have to start over every new contract...)

Meanwhile... thanks for the memories!
