I need to search for the list of threads i've participated in.

Eg. I had participated in this one thread where there was a lot of good information regarding the various options one had while choosing a bag (case) for a DSLR like K10D.

I'm unable to find a 'advanced search' option where i could search by the posts by a user.

:?

have you looked at the little box under the search box, that says search by username.

Doesnt seem to work either.

This very thread is not showing up when i run the search.

I've tried to run a search with my username in the search box and the check box below it (with the checkbox both ticked and unticked).

It's easy. Just click your username at the left of one of your posts in any thread. That's a link to your user profile, where you can check all threads you have started yourself or all post you have posted in any thread, in order of appearance.

BillDrew, a fellow member round here, taught me this search tip, which I find invaluable:-

Use Google's 'Advanced Search'. It's a little link to the right of its main entry box. Then put http://forums.steves-digicams.com/forums/in the 'domain' field, so that you only search in these forums.

Enter your Steve's login name, and a preferably unique search string for the message you seek, and there you are! You can use the full power of Google's search engine, which is rather powerful, as we all know.

You can also do it like this with google from the regular search box (all you do is append a site: with the name of the site you want it to search).

For example, this google search would return posts here containing samsung dslr:

samsung dslr site:forums.steves-digicams.com

Here's a direct link to an example (just look at what's in the google search box)

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search
