I recently went to my topics and as usual the main page looked like it always does,

but I went and clicked my User Name and then clicked my post and received pages of un-sequenced post, etc. whereby it seems difficult to locate what I wanted to find.

Just curious did something change ?

If so I'd like to know?

If not, no problem I'll try to find the old index.

but I went and clicked my User Name and then clicked my post

By clicking user name as you said. Do you mean you are looking at your 'profile'. If so. There are tabs for 'Topics' and 'Posts". Topics are posts that you start. Posts are replies to topics. So you need to know if it's a Topic or a Post when using your profile. My Topics is a chronological listing of everything for about the last 90 days or so depending on how much you post. I don't know the exact parameters.

EDIT: No changes have been made to the forum software. So everything is as it was for quite some time.

You can go back as far as a year, as far as I know. Got to My Topics, then in the lower right hand corner there is a pull down. Get active topics for: then select how far back. The maximum search parameter is one year

Jove, so you're saying that when you click the 'My Topics' link at the top of this page. That the list that is displayed to you is not a listing of your posts?

Note: The last poster in a Thread will be the one who's name shows up.

Are you sure this is not what you are seeing?

It is how my topics are displayed.

If you posted a reply to a topic it will appear in My Topics.

So even if you haven't posted anything to the topic for 6months it will still show up when you look back.
