Hi Guys,

You can find a member's posts by using the Search function at the bottom of the page. It opens a page in which you set the parameters you want and then click search!

Use any word that is contained in the post you are looking for in the "Keyword" field. Alternatively, to bring up the majority of the member's posts, use a common word such as "the" for the "Keyword" parameter.

The "Date" field is required.

The "Topic" field is optional

Use "Forum" for the "Type" field (to find posts) or "PM" to list all PM's that were "exchanged between yourself and the Author only." Leave the field blank and you will get posts and PM's.

And of course the "Author" will be the members name whose posts you are looking for.



BTW, I just remembered, my name is not in the authors list! Have no idea how many others may be missing but the list seems quite small.

Thanks, gemini - that looks great! :thumrt:

I'm guessing your name isn't there because you haven't written an article for Wildlife News or posted a comment on one of the articles - we'll need to check with Richard to see how to get those who author posts in the forum to be included in the list.

....would like to set up a more formal Tutorial thread (especially if we find people willing to help write tutorials as they figure out how to do things .....




Hi Judy,

If you need volunteers to write tutorials, I wouldn't mind taking a stab at it! I have never written formal tutorials before, but I have written "step by step" directions for some of my more computer illiterate friends which they have found helpful.

cheers,
Sharon

That sounds great, gemini - thanks!

I think we should be getting together a list of things that need tutorials soon - and as more people discover the forum, I'm guessing we'll find even more things to include!

Velma Flann had a great question:

In future, will the "members List" be at the top as it was in the old forum? It is sometimes handy for PM's if you don't see an obvious post by someone.



Has anyone seen a member list here? Puzzled

When you go to compose a PM message - there is a drop down list of all the members there

A more visible member list would be nice. There's also no way of knowing how many members we have -- Is there?

Oh I found it in the Admin Only, Users -- 5416 members and all the names. Not very useful to the general membership.
