Hi all. teacher.gif

I was asked this question recently by one of our members and so I am posting the Q & A here for your reference (wioth a sample so you can try it).

Cheers!

How do I find whether I've posted a poem by name... or how do I find ANY poem when I know the name?


Hi {member}. gandalfw.gif

I wanted to find a poem titled 'Dance of Death' so I would:
  1. Click on the 'Search' at the top of the forum, near our logo.
  2. Then immediately click on the 'More Options' button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Type in your title (left side of screen) in the 'Search by Keywords' input box (If you add a plus sign between words, it will search for that string exactly). In my example, I typed: +dance+of+death
  4. Choose the forum to search (or leave it as 'All Forums' from the 'Search Where' selection menu below the keywords input box).
  5. In the 'Search posts from' choose your date range (I chose 'any date' and also chose 'newer'.
  6. In the 'Search Where' selection, I chose 'Search titles only'.
  7. Click 'Perform the Search' button.
In my example, 11 results displayed. I was able to then click into to my post (posted) in both forums, Cleo's Showcase and Plato's Pearls of Wisdom (exhibition forum).

That should work. You could also go 'click on your name' from a thread or the member list and from the Profile menu (top right drop down box) choose 'Find Members Topics', but I don't recommend that way, unless the member doesn't have too many posts/topics to search.

Please let me know if these instructions work for you...

Cheers!
