Searching Quotes

I enjoy this forum and have entered several posts about technical stuff. I avoid discussing actual photography since I have little to contribute.

Is there a way to search for replies to your own posts? I know I can search for my user name to find my own posts. But today I found someone asked a question about one of my posts several days ago. I would have liked to have responded promptly, rather than stumble on it days later. This is not the first time, and happens on other systems as well. It would be nice to quickly know some did a "quote" reply to your post.

I think this topic deserves a separate thread...

Quoted replies are in no way flagged in the database, but executing your username as the search query will return all quotes of your posts, and hopefully little more. Give it a try!

I'm sorry I posted in the wrong thread Adam, I thought I was one level up in Suggestions, Errors, and Help. Feel free to move or delete my question.

Your answer did the trick. I had searched by my user name in Advanced Search By User Name. I tried my user name in Advanced Search by Keyword and it found anyone who quoted me, including your post.

Thank You.

I'm glad you managed to find what you were looking for! The search engine here is quite flexible...

I went ahead and moved these posts into a new thread to make them easier to find.
