    Username Post Lookup

    I don't know if it is possible with this forum platform or not, but I like how on another food forum (Chowhound), you can just click on your username and all the threads you have contributed to all come up. I know you can sort of do the same thing here and look up your threads started and your individual posts, but I think the Chow way is actually pretty slick. It sort of combines started/contributions/following all in one nice click, with highlighted 'new' buttons when someone posts something fresh and the thread automatically is moved up to the top of your post list. It is like an all-in-one post reader. There are no subscriptions or multiple clicks.

    It's probably not possible, but I though I would just mention it in case it was.

    k.

    If you click on Settings at the very top of the page you will see a list of threads you posted in.

    Really, my login doesn't do that -- or am I missing something? It shows my subscriptions only, not posts.

    Well, it isn't that intuitive. I think I figured it out under Settings/My Account/General Settings, but there is still no subscriptions coming in. Maybe it will just populate new posts, so this is a test.

    Retraction. Maybe I am just thick, but I still can't figure out to to subscribe to threads that I post in. The threads only enter my subscriptions if I start the thread. Is there a different way?
