Great forum -- informative, current, entertaining, expressive, etc., etc.

But whenever I post I cannot find my post and answers and comments thereto. To find your post, you have to do a lot of fishing, trial-error searching. For example, after posting this, I probably won't be able to find it again unless I want to go to a lot of trouble. Or maybe there is a quick and sensible way to find posts ... that you have posted?

What's the secret? Where's the magic button?

Thanks

Type your username in the above box "search forums" and it should take you to your posts.

Once you get used to it, it isn't hard to find what you are looking for. I know that when I was a newbie, I had no idea how to do any searches, etc. That is why I think I have empathy for those newbies that ask questions before searching...I did the same.

Also, in Settings you can "subscribe" to any thread in which you make a comment. Then each time when you come to C-D, just click on My Settings in the upper left hand corner of the page, and all those threads will be listed as soon as there is a comment made subsequent to yours. This is a very efficient way of working.
