    I'm having trouble searching back through old threads (so I can download all my Deska threads).

    Wondering if there's anyone who has some expertise in search functions?

    When I use the search function I can only go back 10 pages. The search function does allow me to limit the searches to threads I started about Deska, but I only go back 18mths.

    If I use the 'Your Content' in my control panel it brings up all my posts and I can click on 'Find older content' on page 10 to go back another 10 pages. But 'Your Content' includes all my posts - so it will take me forever to go back 10 years to find the Deska threads.

    Any ideas how I go back 10 years looking for threads I created about Deska?

    your created threads: https://sheltieforums.com/search/13147909/?page=10
    on your profile page, you can click on the third tab- Postings
    from there scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Find all threads by username
    I got 10 pages of results (200 threads) going back to 2012.

    The old site had a much better search function...........

    Ah, that's what I did wrong, should have gone into my profile page instead of just using my control panel. I can see on page 10 the option to 'Find older content' so I can go back to 2009.

    Thanks so much - trawling through over 6,000 posts was taking forever!
