    I know there is a way to search for all content that I have posted. Is there a way to specifically search for topics I, or other members have started?

    Thankee kindly,

    Click on your icon, then the number next to "messages"
    upload_2018-3-3_14-19-56.

    It will give you this search of all your content: https://www.survivalmonkey.com/search/1993877/

    I know how to search (and find) ALL content. I am wondering if I can search ONLY for topics started, not all posts made.

    For example, my featured threads can be found, by clicking THIS LINK. Just trying to see if I can find ALL of my threads, without having ALL posts mixed in with them. Sorry for the confusion.

    If that option is here, my blonde hair is preventing me from seeing it, fer shur.

    I found the search engine on the site. CLICK HERE to set options. At least it is a more detailed search, although it doesn't seem to isolate threads from posts, either. I will try it and see how well it functions.

    I don't believe that is currently an option, but there is a way to do this, it just takes some effort on your part.
    You will have to search all of your posts and manually go into the threads you started and check the option to "watch", then from this point onward for every thread you create, do the same as well. All you will have to do next is go to your watched threads. I also suggest turning off the feature to send an alert every time a post is made in them.

    I actually do this for my own content.

    I've actually been thinking about changing my forum email address to one where I only receive emails from this forum. I would just hate to miss replies, messages, etc., from here. By FAR, my favorite forum offering such topics.

    Yes, I know you can find ALL posts that way. But, you cannot isolate YOUR posts from YOUR topics, which I wanted to do.

    By Topics, I mean threads YOU started, for example. By Posts, I mean ANY reply to a topic that YOU have made.

    See what I mean?

    No, that will display all of your posts, not just the threads you started, which is what he's after. We do have the ability to find all of our threads which have been featured, which is cool.

    The only search option that will come close to what you want is at the top right of the front page. If you know the topic and initiator, that should uncover it.

    Then once you have all your postings, scroll down to the bottom of the page and select:
    Find all threads will pull up only the threads that you have started. You can also look under other members and see the listing of the threads they started that way.

    My pleasure.:) That is how I track down threads.

    or search box and put in the members name. If you know a specific word in the title, that narrows things down. Check the title box.
