      That is a useful tool to help find things quickly. Wasn't there something similar available in the old version when you viewed your profile?

      It only shows either recent threads or those that have been created since the move. Is this the intention?

      I know that you have rebuilt the search index a couple of times already, so I am thinking that there is something else which needs looking into if it isn't intended.

      Some members have all their posts there, (from the old and new forums) others do not.

      We are still trying to sort that out, as that should not happen by default.

      My posts go back to Nov, '09. iirc this was the time that the changes made to suit one member lost a lot of data, including the Thanks votes.

      We haven't lost any data it's just the search options aren't rebuilding it etc

      The thanks votes were lost when you say, but they are in a totally different database table

      We will sort it just taking a bit of time, I think mine all show?

      Yes, I have checked a few other members and as you say, some go right back, others are only showing the new forum posts.

      I will try a search rebuild again over night. It takes hours and slows the forums right down whilst running, hence why I am reluctant to mess with it during the day.
