Searching for a Post from Someone

I frequently want to go back to a post where I remember who posted, but little else. This is the way that I would find something posted by someone called "Nick" .........

click "Members" on the upper right

The "N" cos I am "Nick"

Then click on "Nick" to see his Profile

Click on the "search user's posts" link. That gives you a list of his posts which you can then do a further searches on to filter down to exactly what you are looking for. I find it easier than using the "Advanced Search" page, which whilst being extremely powerful does take time to fill out all the search criteria

I rarely need to search by Member. It's usually a topic I'm looking for so I use a keyword.
