I am sure yesterday I found a link to click that would show you all the posts you made. Now I can't find it. It seemed it was under "search".

Seems itś a bit farther away now. Go to Search, select advanced search and enter your username in the appropriate field. You can save the search if you want to. Just found out because I was looking for the same thing...

This feature seems to have gotten lost in the recent forum upgrade.

You can still do a search by user name and put your own name in if you want to access your posts.

Hopefully they'll put it back soon.

Quick Links > Your Profile

Somewhere on your profile page, under Statistics, there's a link called Find All Posts by <User>

E.g. on mine it says Find All Posts by Joeb454 (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=373057)

No problem, I only know because I've explored the new forum layout for the last 4 hours :p

Ok, I am trying to learn as fast as I can. What does RTFM mean? I saw that in a post in a link in one of the persons who helped me.

The thing is, when it comes to Linux and Ubuntu, I DON'T know anything and am just learning. This is day 3. I need to find some really good manual on Linux that I can understand with a list of the commands.

I have links to instructions, but they are complicated and too long for me use right now. I have been reading them and will read them, they are great tools. But, at the same time, I have to be productive and I can't without a list of commands that may be used. Heck. I installed mediawiki and now I don't even know how to access it because there are no files remotely named "wiki". I need to be able to input stuff to the wiki while I am learning Linux, not after.

For some reason, I can't start a new thread that would cover this issue. What would cause me to not be able to start a new thread?

Thank you ladies and gentlemen! If you want to see what I am up to

Make sure all the prerequisites for creating the thread are satisfied (title prefix etc.)

And philinux is right, rtfm is usually posted by impatient people. If you have any issues just create a new thread or if you can't, continue posting in this one :)

Thank you. I hope someone will tell me soon how to access the mediawiki I installed. I need to start working in it. Sometimes I feel like I am swimming up-stream in the Mississippi River!

Better you start a new thread Cindy. It will get more chance to get attention from people. To start a new thread you can click this New thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=326). I never setup a wiki before so can't help. Good luck with your project.

If you can't find in the menu's you can still start in the terminal. terminal is under the menu aaplications>accesories (I believe, I'm in windows now).
In the terminal type the name of the application (probably mediawiki)

so the it becomes:

mediawiki
in the terminal.
keep in mind that if you close the terminal window, you will also close the program.

Alright, back on topic then.

I would propose that the "Find own posts" command is added to either the search or the quick links menu. Since this command should be easily accesible.

Just so anybody stumbling onto this thread knows, there are now (again) options under the search link at the top of the page for Find All your Threads and Find All your Posts. I presume that was not there when this thread was started.
