  • Lost post from years ago

    Does anyone know how to find a post made a couple of years ago? I started a post I think back in 2020 and I have no clue how to go back and finish it. I tried the search by title and by key word but no luck. I'd appreciate any help I could get.

    I would try a Google search on the forum with what ever name you used for the title. Also if you posted any pictures they may help you find the thread with a Google search. If you can post one of those pictures and the name of that thread on this thread and let me see if I can find it.

        That's a good forum question! For months now (in my spare time and in the mood). I've been trying to find a thread I started years(?) ago and haven't been able to find it either.

        The thread was worded something to the effect??? Why did we pick the forum name & avatar picture we did? Thanx Thom...

          Frank, Good to see you back on the forums again!
          This worked for me. I found every post I'd made since first joining the forum. Two of them had a couple replies missing, but everything else was there.

          When logged in click on your avatar and it'll take you to your USER PROFILE like above (except I blocked out any personal information in that photo) then:
          1. Click on ABOUT and scroll down to the bottom of the page
          2. Click on
          FIND ALL POSTS
          That should take you to what you are looking for.

                One point to bring up, Bill is right, but if you are looking for something you started as a thread, than click on (Find all started topics) circled in red. in cuts down on the (Find all posts) you have to look at.

                  Nice to see you posting here again Frank. I thought you had disappeared. So are you back. Can we expect some modelling updates from you ?

                  Thanks Bill & Louis, for that info on how to search. Very helpful to find my threads.
                  I've been trying the "normal" search method to find other folks older threads, without much luck.
                  Shame it's not more simple.
