    Default How can I find all of my posts?

    I just tried to find all of my posts by going to "profile" --> "find latest post", but the forum was only able to generate 423 posts, which didn't include all of my posts.

    Is there a way to find all of my posts?

    Thank you.

    Go to "quick links" in the menu bar and then choose "subscribed thread." Anything you have posted to will be in that list.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    OK thank you, that's a solution, but I sometimes subscribe to threads in which I don't post anything because I find the content interesting, but I have nothing to add to the the discussion. These threads also show up under "Subscribed Threads in Folder". So in other words, it's only a partial solution.

    Also, I very much prefer the interface of Find latest posts because there I can immediately see the content of my posts. Does it cost too much bandwith to generate more than 423 posts?

    I don't think it's a bandwidth issue- I got 475 results on that link.

    You can use Google, but it requires a bit effort, and may also be unreliable. But I've just used this trick, and it worked. You joined this site in June 2010. Now it's August 2012. On this page, input "2010-07-01" in the left upper corner. Scroll down, and click "Convert". The "Julian Day" value is what's interesting to us. Copy the "2455378". Then we do the same with "2012-08-30", and we get "2456169". Now we can compose our Google query:

    site:usingenglish.com daterange:2455378-2456169 "chicken sandwich"

    The results won't be usefully ordered. You can manipulate the dates of course.

    But the odd thing is that I have fewer than 475 posts, so that count is definitely wrong. If I go to your "latest post"-page, I can only see the last 417 posts, I certainly cannot find all of your 36,146 posts. It's not really a huge deal, but on different message boards, I am usually able to find all of my or other people's posts.
