new to site: how do you search message by author?

M_N_AFebruary 18, 2013

is there such feature? for example, how do I quickly see all the messages I have posted?

pardon if this is a stupid question. I did some research and couldn't find the answer.

You could search the forum for the username. There's a search box at the bottom of the main forum page.

At the top of the main page it says:

"Before posting a question, please check the FAQ and do a search to make sure it hasn't already been answered."

Click on the word "search" to search this forum or all forums.

i had tried the search box. If I put M_N_A there, the returned links are not related to me at all, let alone if i would need to search for a user with common word (say, "house")

Put in MNA

If you don't find much it is because the database is incomplete and the software poorly written.

Try doing a google phase and site search combined.
