Does this forum allow for sorting by author in a thread?
« on: September 07, 2021, 03:30:30 PM »
Other forums I've visited had a link within a thread to show and sort by authors, number of posts within a thread etc. I always find it really hard when sorting through a multi page thread to find my old posts, or reference something that someone else commented.

Click on their name in the thread. Then it takes you to a profile page; on the left side is Profile: Show Stats or Show Posts.

Click on Show Posts - you can read their posts with the thread title, most recently posted first.

I've wondered about this too.

Searching google for it doesn't work either as it seems only posts are indexed, not posers, so unless you got quoted google results don't help either.

Thanks!! This is a reasonable enough work around for my posts, but it will still be unreasonable to find posts made by some of the more prolific people here
