Default A New, Quicker Way to Find Your Posts on Threads

Hello All (:

When we go browse over a forum, there are many threads. We see a small folder icon on the left side of the thread's "info box". If the icon has a green dot inside, that tells us that we've posted in that thread before. In order to find that post, we'd have to search through "My Posts" or search the thread. I've used the 'Search This Thread' tool before.. About 2 out of 10 times the correct post shows up. Now, I think there should be a quick, more accurate way to find results. When we mouse over to the folder with the green dot, this shows up:

Click the image to open in full size.

When clicking that, it wll bring up the posts that we've posted in that thread.Then we'd flip through our posts to find what we're looking for. There could also be a more "Advanced" option, we could select: Most recent, 2 week ago etc. but it would just be an add-on to the original idea.


I think this would also be helpful on the GE threads as well. Sometimes its hard to find a post in a GE and you might miss out on a reply. But with the said suggustion it would bring you up to that post so you don't end up searching through all these posts and pages! It would sure help me!



Search This Thread:
The tool WI has now has never worked for me. As said before, about 2 out of the 10 times it actaully brings up some-what of the post(s) I had been looking for. But with that tool, you get everything with related items/words involved.
Maybe its just me that can't get the tool to work, but I still think this suggustion would be more correct and easier.


Thanks!

*With all suggustions, there are Cons -- I am open to your opinions, but let's be kind when stating them *

There is one way to do it Lake. I will give you some pictures and instructions.
First you have to click on the number of replies. This will bring up a Who Posted? Pop Up. You can then click on number of posts next to your usrename and it will show you all your posts in that thread. (you can do this with other members. For example in my picture I could click on the number of Posts Sydney88 has and it would take me to all of her posts in that thread) Here is a picture of what I am saying. If you need me to explain more ask.
Click the image to open in full size.

Thank you for this information Clara!! And thanks to Lake for bringing this subject up. Sometimes I gets so frustrated trying to find a post on a really large thread! I'm going to go try this out.

I agree It can often be a pain to find that one post in a very large thread. I find that the method I posted helps a bit. It is more helpful when you have only posted on that thread a few times but it doesn't really help if you post a lot on that thread but it is better than nothing.
