i can't figure out how to search for thread authors. for example, how would i search for all threads in the music cafe that were created by, say, runagate? not all the threads runagate contributed to, just the ones he started.

thanks. :-)

Best I can do is to search for all threads you're in, then visually scan the results looking for your name in the Author column. If there's a way to do it directly I don't know how it's done. Not that I'm any kind of expert.

thanks, meffy. :-)

the problem with this method is that from the second page of hits on, the results are listed as single postings, rather than threads. so i can only scan the author column on the first page of hits.

anyone have a better way?

Wull, ah be dawg -- it's so. Never got that far, I guess.

(BTW, this ought to be in Site Stuff, I think. Moving it there now.)

I think this would be really handy, too - I've wanted to do that occasionally.
