Seeing a list of topics I've posted or replied to?
« on: August 28, 2018, 06:38 PM »
Hello!

I'd really like to see a list of all threads I've replied to or started regardless of whether there have been new replies or not.  I can find a list of my posts but I'd really rather see a list of threads I've participated in.

Am I blind?

I'm no expert, but you should be able to go to the top menu and go to  Profile>Summary>Show Posts (on left side under your screen name)?  That works for me.

That shows my posts which I know how to do.

Now let's make an example.

Let's say I've replied 30 times in one thread - you'll find 30 entries on that page for one thread.

I just want to see the threads I've replied to, not each individual post.

I'm a member on dozens of forums and this is the only one I've not been able to find this feature on - so I was/am hoping I'm just overlooking it :).

I don't think that you are overlooking it.  It doesn't appear to be an option in the software.  That being said there could be a work around figured by a member.

Ok. Anybody know what forum software this site uses?

I’m familiar with most - phpBB, vBulletin, Invision Power Board, XenForo, etc - but don’t recognize this one.

OK ... l get it now.. Try this .. do a "Search" and just add you forum name in the "Search for" field.  This might work better .. it will also bring up posts you were mentioned in ... good luck.

The forum software is SMF - Simple Machine Forum.

Wow... I haven't seen/used/interacted with SMF in a LONG time.  I remember their logo though... that teeter totter / triangle thing :).

I didn't know people were still using SMF...

I used to put my initials in posts so that I could narrow search results to find a particular post I made. You could do something similar (initials , code words,etc) but just add it to the first post you make in a topic (or one you start). Search for that code word under only your username.

Yes, I know a hassle. We are bit antiquated here.
