Jet Li and Deti thanks...

Actually gave me a reason to upgrade to 2.4 tonight and it was the quickest , most simple upgrade ever.
Still need to reset my template from default but will worry about that after I get home from my trip next week.

The mod works like a charm, my members will be very happy.

Thanks from everyone at http://poem.org

Jet Li,

OMG I can't beleive you built that mod so fast LOL

Captain John, I  think they are right in my particular case with members posting poems people want to follow a particular poets poems and not always replies to post. Whereas, on a support forum for example it would not be needed and the search string method makes more sense.

Thanks guys, You are awesome.

I like this feature like this in view User Profile with 2 links:

Find all* posts by deti
Find all* threads started by deti

*Set number of search posts/threads from Admin Center what we have now, but seperatly from search Page option.

@ Doherty

I understand your need of this feature in your special case:

My forum is poets posting a poem and then others critique. Many poets have many replies to post and it is difficult for members to search that poet by topics started.

At the moment this is not planed. But I can imagine others wanting this feature too, so please try to motivate some of the mod-writers on Board-Mod for the moment.

  Shame they can remember who posted it first (to be Topic started by) but can't remember what the topic was about to be able to enter a search string ..... and entering a defining string of the users name and an asterisk to find the member, or scrolling down 250 listings of the users post and replies (which should take them back several months of that users posting ..)
  but knowing our Dev's, adding bloat is their thing.

Captain John,

I am sorry it seems you are missing what I am saying.

Even here on this forum try clicking on search for topics started by someone. first it requires a search string and it is cumbersome to search the member name in a large forum such as this one even.

It has nothing to do with how many post the search will query.
All I am saying is it would be good to have a:
Search for Topics started ( not including replies) by this member in the members profile.
as well as
Search for post (which includes replies) by this member as it already has.

As far as the number of post it shows I have adjusted mine to up to 250 max and that has helped my members some when searching for older post.

Captain John,

On my forum it will not allow me to choose a member and select search for topics started by someone.

Also it requires a search string.

Need it to simply be search this members post by topic started or by posted ins. So, it's not doing what I need.

My forum is poets posting a poem and then others critique. Many poets have many replies to post and it is difficult for members to search that poet by topics started.
It would be a benefit  if they could easily search by members topics started , and by members post
