Very sorry...but how do I find an older forum post in this section?

As title suggests…I’m very sorry I have to even post this. But how do I find an older post that I made about a month ago? This was before I had received my arduino kit and got some experience under my belt. I’ve looked under ‘unread posts’ and ‘updated topics’ but neither of them have the post I made in them. I also looked under my personal profile and settings and couldn’t find a history anywhere.

There was a lot of sudo-discussion and useful feedback that I got from some veterans around here in that post. I wanted to re-visit the post to review the feasibility for a project.

Why is this feature not in the arduino forums??

* It is a feature, but not a very well implemented one.*

Click on your name in the post above.
You will be redirected to your profile ‘control panel’.
On the left side there’s a clickable link that says “Show Posts”.
Click it, and there you are.

I managed the find the post after doing a search for my username 'aspen1135'. However, I don't think this is neccessarily a reliable way of finding old archived information. Especially if you don't remember the post title. Is there an alternative method?

Click on your avatar, and click on “Show Posts”.

If you use Google, search for “aspen1135 KEYWORD site:arduino.cc” (replace KEYWORD with one or more search terms).
Asking Google to only look in the last month might help (Tools>AnyTime>PastMonth in Firefox)
Leo…

You two must have me on ignore.

haha not at all. I was about to thank you but the forums also have that post reply and 5 minute restriction thing. Thanks for the help. I don't know why these things are so difficult or hidden in the arduino forums. hopefully this post will be useful to someone else as well.

There is a "lollypop" search icon on top of every page.
Used to be exposed, but they made it hidden with a new (stupid) update.
Together with more (stupid) sliding/hopping "features", which I managed to remove with ABP.
Leo..

Hmmm, I still have the loli. Then a purse shopping cart, and then a little round picture of me, in the upper right corner of every window.

Yes, but the search field is now hidden, and only slides out when the lollipop is clicked.
Seems that some can't find it anymore.
Leo..

Because the search system is poor I have got into the habit of bookmarking ALL threads that I start and any Post (whether by me of A.N. Other that I think may be useful in the future. I give the bookmarks names that will be useful to help me find the bookmark - not necessarily the Thread title.
