Some time ago I asked a question and received useful replies. This is no longer in 'My Topics'

Is this area limited as to size?

Cheers

If your using the My Topics link, at the top of this page, it does seem to be limited in size.

To find all of your Topics, click on your user name on this page to get to your Profile.
Once there, to the right you'll see a Profile Options button.
Click the button and select Find member's topics.
This should list all of the Topics you started.

Selecting Find member's posts, will give you a list of every Post you've ever made.

You're welcome, rowal5555.

That last comment is a bit scary.

Not to mention, a lot of information to sort through. :thumbsup:

I am not sure this applies to members instead of Moderators (I think it does for everyone)- - - but if you go to the bottom right-hand part of the display page, and change the "get active topics for:" to the time-frame choice of "this year" you get at least 1248 pages!!!!!
TG's way also works.

Actually, I think the My Topics link is time limited rather than size limited. IOW, links more than around 30 days old will disappear from the list.

AFAIK, this is an something you will only find at BC. Grinler instituted it around the same time as the Participating Topics links in your users Control Panel (My Controls link). If you go to your Control Panel and scroll down to Subscriptions in the left hand column, you'll see what I'm talking about. Any topic you have posted to will be listed in those Participating Topics links and are filetered by time:

7 Days
30 Days
All


So the All one will give you about the same results as going into your profile as tg1911 has suggested. As with most things computer related, there is more than one way to skin a cat. :thumbsup:

Alternatively, you could click on the Search link in the upper right hand corner and input your keywords. You can also sort by specific Member Name. In the "search where" portion of the search tool, you can narrow or broaden your search as you wish. From a specific Category or Forum to the Entirety of the Forums.
