Is there a way of finding your posts and topics that you have started? I have that ability on other forums that I'm on.

The "search" facility on GN is not very good, search using Google + the topic + your username ...

Yes. There is "I'm On" tab/button above or below depending on how you're viewing GN.

There currently isn't a way to do that lilypollen; the 'I'm on' tab lets you see all the posts you're on, but doesn't help to find ones that you started yourself.

Hi lilypollen. The above suggestions are what we probably would have recommended too. The 'I'm on' button is your best choice. smile

Must admit, the search facility on GN is pretty terrible. I would have hoped that GNHQ would have that sorted in the recent update of the site. But it appears not, for some reason. Shame isn't it?

If you go on customise, you can ask them to automatically show you threads you started.

Thank you
I do use I'm on but if there are multiple pages it's tedious having to go through them all. I just wanted to post an update on an old thread I started so I'll have to use the search facility. I'll try customise too.

Please post if you find the way to do this. I would like to update a post from 5 months ago! My parcel sent in August, through Royal Mail to grandchildren in New York arrived at the end of January!! grin
