Is there a way for me to see all posts by a particular member in the forums without going into each forum individually?

At the top of this forum, where it says "Search for" just key in the Author' name (as it shows here on the left side). This name is entered all the way over on the right. Click Search and it brings up all posts by that author. (Leave everything else blank or default)

Barbara,

Does what Jack said answer your question or were you referring to your website's User Forums?

Incidentally - although I am subscribed to this thread I did not receive any emails when either Jack or Kyle replied. I just came back here and found the replies.

Hi Barbara,

It is a bit of a two step process on the website user forums. If you search a name it says no matches on the screen that comes up after the search, however, if you search again on that screen using one of the match options (exact name, any word, etc.) it will include the name as part of that search. The initial search I believe only searches the topics.

For my type of forum, the search does not match post Author Names. IOW, if I search for my name, nothing shows up even though I started 2 topics.

It does work for searching the posts.

Why isn't there a search mechanism for Message Forums? We have both Message Forum and User Forums and use them differently. It doesn't seem like it would be that much trouble to make the Message Forum searchable. There is a very obvious benefit to searchability, and it is a disservice not to provide that feature.
