looking for my post

I started to look for some of my past post and they are all over the place. I made a post yesterday that I tried to look up and I was on page 10 and still couldn't find it. I tried to go by the date and the dates are all over the place to. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

1. Go to your user control panel - link to is on the top of the screen on the very right side

2. Look for "edit your options" in the menu on the left

3. Set your "Default Thread Subscription Mode" to any of the choices other than 'do not subscribe". If you choose email, it'll email you anytime someone posts in a thread you've started or posted in. It gets kind of annoying to get a bunch of emails so I set mine to "no email notification".

4. when you visit the forum, click "user control panel" and it'll display a list of the threads you have subscribed to that have new posts. Then you can read them all and catch up. If there are no new messages, they won't be on the list but you can still easily find them by going to the menu on the left side of the screen and choosing "list subscriptions."

BTW, if there is a thread you'd like to follow but haven't posted in, you can still subscribe to it. At the top of each post is a menu that says "thread tools" and you can subscribe to the thread that way and it'll start appearing on your subscription list, or send you email or whatever you choose.

Thanks for the information, I try it right now.

BTW, i don't think it'll show you threads from the past, but it'll start working for you from now on.

what the OP is describing is the broken "Find all posts" functionality. The fix described here may or may not work, but it shouldnt be needed because all of your past posts should be listed when you do a find all posts on your username, but they arent. I've made probably 80 posts in many forums since jan 1st 2009 and when I look under FIND ALL POSTS none of them seem to show up.

Yes that's what's happening to me. I did change the setting, but I don't think it did anything.
