This is not a question about politics but I couldn't find any other section of this board where I could post a question this irrelevant to Ubuntu.

I really like this board's setup. I run a vBulletin board myself but have not customized it much. I sometimes visit the customization forum at vbulletin.org but there is too much to read there.

In particular, I like the way the Search pull-down is set up. The option "Find all your posts" is truly excellent. It is unbelievable to me that this is not there by default.

I would like to implement it at my board. Can someone tell me how to do it?

The "Find all your threads" item is my second-most favorite feature.

I've moved this thread to a more appropriate section.

Why not head to the vBulletin forum and ask there?

Basically, you're looking to add a link to
http://ubuntuforums.org/search.php?do=finduser&u=$user

With PHP finding the $user, to your menu using a text editor. I could go into more detail, but I'd need the names of files etc.

I have little experience with the vB file structure. PM me if you need a link to the vB forums. :)
