Hi,this is the first time for ages that I've been able to use Rootschat again and I'm looking for a bit of help please, so hope I'm using the correct board.

A few years back I was able to pull up & print off  a list of all my posts (through my profile), which I kept for easy reference.

I've mislaid my original list, but quite a while ago when I tried to repeat the procedure by  going into 'my profile and 'show posts', it listed not just my posts my  but also the text.

Is there a way in which I can just get a list, showing subject title only as before, of all my posts?

I would appreciate advice on this please, any guidance at all,as a list of my posts would really help me to pick up and get started/renew my interests, with Rootchat again.

Thanks very much

Barbara.

Hello Barbara

Welcome back  :)

I've been a member since 2006 but I can't remember a title-only listing.

Maybe Trystan or Sarah might know.

Click on "Search" then type your name Barbara348 in "Search For" and click on "Search". There are 62 posts,

If you also add your name to the "User" section, you will only get 4 posts.

Regards

Malky

I don't think that works. It only brings up 100 posts for me or 123 pages without the 'by' and also includes the first line of the posting.

Add - and this only if my name is mentioned in the post

Perhaps this?

In your profile select Show posts.
It defaults to all messages, but you can select “topics”. As far as I can tell this brings up a list of threads I have started.  Not all threads I have participated in. But haven’t checked all yet.

OP mentioned wanting to print just the titles without the text.

I've been a member since 2006 also and don't remember being able to select any option to just print out posts by titles.

If one uses the Search facility, without the 'by user............', the results would include all posts in which your name was mentioned: for e.g. I agree with  x or 'as x says, etc.  If one puts the username in both boxes, you only get the post where the member has signed or referred to his/herself in a post. If you put the name in the  'by user' box, you have to put something in the search box or you get an error!

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for:

On your profile, click Show Posts.  The list of posts comes up with the text.  If you click 'attachments' at the top of the list, you get a list without text.  Mine goes back to about 2011 which would be about right for me.

I hope this helps
