I noticed that I'm listed as having 14 posts (15 with this one). When I do an advanced search looking for post by my USER NAME, search returns 3 posts. It appears to me that there are 11 posts missing.

I joined this forum on 7 June 2004, 11 plus years ago. Due to personal issues I did not log into this forums for quite some time. Is this why my posts can not be found? Or perhaps my posts are too old to be found. How do I find my old posts?


Thanks!

Vinny,

Thanks! Weird that Advanced Search doesn't find them. Might be a database issue?

Unfortunately, the built-in search engine here is pretty erratic. Although I use it sometimes, I'm never quite sure what it's going to do in response to a seemingly straightforward query, nor do I know how much of that is the search algorithm and how much problems with database indexing.

Tony, if you want to search this forum use Google Advanced Search (at https://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en) and tell it to search domain http://www.largeformatphotography.info
