    Searching the Lounge

    Is there a way to narrow a search to one's own postings?
    Thanks.

    Within a specific Forum, search for yourself by UserName.

    Yet another option: when you're looking at the list of threads in a forum, click on your username on the right hand side above the list of threads to see all your posts within that forum.

    Thanks. Clicking one's username while in a forum is a neat trick. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    I guess what I was really looking for was a way to search for a term within my own postings. I know how to pull up my own postings and I know how to search the Excel forum for post relating to "toolbars"... And both of those searches will reveal hundreds of results. If I could search just my posts for "toolbars", I could quickly locate the 2 or 3 posts that I need.

    The thought of this became forefront when I almost had to ask a question that I know I had asked before (some years ago) because I could not quickly locate my original posting.

    > way to search for a term within my own postings

    That would be very handy, but unfortunately that's not possible with the current Lounge software. Perhaps in the future...
