Hi guys.

When I go to my profile, I see that I wrote total of 57 posts. I would like to see them all, the problem is that when I click on " Search for all user messages" I am getting Forum Search. I would expect to get the list of all of my posts.
Is it possible to search forum by author? I am pretty sure that few years ago I could see all of my posts and now I can't.

Thanks for your help.

AFAIK, no.

And in my case, I guess that is a good thing. I must have written
millions, by now. <g>

I went to Forum Search following the same steps, put in "John+Kaster"
and found my posts that way.

This appears to work for yours:

My profile shows 8299 messages total (I know I have a lot more than that, but messages have been lost over the years, search indexes got reset, etc).

When I click on "Search for all user messages", it shows the first 15 results and links to 17 more pages of results. Which only goes back as far as Jun 29 2017, so not even close to my full history. Probably because the search defaults to "Date Range: Last 90 Days", but it stops at the same place even if I set the "Date Range" to "all" instead.
