Forum Control Panel doesn't show all my content


If I go to Content part of the profile:




I see only 8 threads of mine




But in reality I have much much more. If I search by author it finds me 15




end even that list is not full. I assume I have even more.

Unsure why this isn't working as expected. Will drop a note to our forum admin.

This is not very convenient. Sometimes there is a need for old posts.

I imagine it boils down to efficiency. A more prolific user like Charles or Jeff searching "My Content" would generate hundreds or thousands of hits. Increasing the searched timeframe would likely do mean things to server memory for little benefit. I would imagine you could find your posts by simply searching your name and you could refine that by adding the subject you were looking for. Also, a year in computers is a fair bit of time. Your info might be outdated in a year.

I use Google site search to find old post of mine. That is if the post info is not in my notes, really important stuff to me I have in my notes along with a link to the forum post. Notes are in Markdown in my Dropbox so I can grep them and access them regardless of what machine I am on.
