I notice that if I look at my post history, it only shows my last 3,700 posts. I want to find some of the posts I made before that, is there a way I can see them without having to search the forums? I sometimes can't remember where and what I posted, so that would be great.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, this is the limit for the forum search engine.

It's easy to find your *first 3,700* posts by changing your search options:



The posts in between the first 3,700 and the last 3,700? I haven't yet figured out an easy way to search for those .....

Thanks DOTM! It's a pity my post count is now over 7200, so there's a missing third or so in the middle...

Ah, now that DOTM has shown us the example... there's also the option to search posts from six months and three months ago. Both older and newer - doesn't it cover everything you need to find? Of course, the results will still be limited to 3,700 posts for each search but manipulating the criteria should give you a better scope?

I'm not sure if it's an easy way but it's probably easier than googling your CD posts...
