I like the new search feature, it's fast and I like reading a potion of each post before I choose.

      I have made the search better, by allowing you to broaden or narrow your search by time (from 1 week to All History.)  It took me a long time to figure out a way to implement the option, but now that I've figured out a way I like it, I'll be adding other options, such as searching by forum.

      Also, I was thinking of changing the Username search: instead of having a separate search "tab" for Username, I was thinking of allowing you to enter the Username on the right side (where the date range is), and then you could also add search terms to enter, which would allow you to search for specific topics posted by someone.

      Anyone have any feedback on this possibility?

        I should think for us non paying members that we should be happy and thankful for what we get.

        With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

          I would like to be able to search for all posts just by a particular person or member and I would like to see only that person's posts and nobody elses.

          Like insteadn of seeing the complete threads with everybodies' post there, I would like to see only a particulsar person's post and nobody elses, like a compilation of only the person's posts and nobody elses posts.

            I miss the old way of searching....example...If you go to search my name now....there is not option to search by author or what have you...it simply shows all the posts I either authored or replied in...and to top it all off...you would have to go thru all 43 pages of my posts to see which ones I was the author of....makes searching harder in my opinion...cos it takes longer to find what you are looking for....

              I agree with you Dman.. it is harder to find a particular author...

                  It's funny how fondness makes the heart grow fonder ... and changes things.

                  The old search could not do what you're saying it could.  It pulls up exactly the same set of posts that the new one does.  Except the new one also shows text captions.

                    It's the same clicks.  Click the name, then Search for Posts.  That's all.  Maybe you're not seeing it for some reason, but I don't know why, because the link is the same.

                      well...I use to be able to type in a users name...example...enter Dash...and search by author to find all his posts that he authored...now it simply pulls up all his posts that he authored or replied in.....this is not the same as it was....there's a big difference....for dash right now..it shows 214 posts of his...well thats fine..but how many of them did he actually author???  where did that feature go???

                        The old one pulled up all posts for an author, and did not distinguish the ones he/she started from what he/she participated in as a "reply".  Just like now.
