I try to alway reply to any answers on the posts that I make. The usual way to make sure that I don't miss on is to search on my forum name. That gives me all my posts and I can scan them to see if any have new posters.

Suddenly, when I now search on my name, all I get is two posts that I have made. Always the same two posts. Testing the search on other posters names, I get every one they have made.

Not sure what is happening. Anybody?

When I search by username I get all your posts back. How are you searching?

I log in.
Click Search on the menubar (between Get New and Quick Links)
Enter my login name - cptkrf
Click either Show Threads or Show Posts
Click Go


Just tried it again. Got the same two posts. Weird.

It occurred to me that I have just updated Opera, so it might have been that. I know there is a problem with Opera and capchas, but I just logged on with Safari 5 and it does the same thing, except now there are three in the list. It includes this one.

I looked in advanced search to see if I might have been filtering in some way, but all the fields there are set to default.

The best way to find posts by username is to click search, then advanced search and then you'll see a spot in the upper right to search by username.
