    Go to your profile > my activities > left side of the screen under your username > click on find latest posts.

    Also you can subscribe to a thread that you post in manually or automatically but the notifications only work some of the time.

    As well as the method wildmanne39 mentions there is also a "Quick Links" menu on the top of every forum page. That link has both "Find all my threads" and "Find all my posts" further links within it.

    then...

    Edit: I may have misread the opening post a bit initially, the second link will show all your posts but not necessarily a list of all the threads you have posted in. Your question may be a bit more involved than what I have answered for it seems now after re-reading your post.

    Re: how to see a list of the threads i have posted in

    i already use quick links and threads. but the threads list, there, only lists threads i started. it would be nice if quick links also had something to show all the threads i have posted in, with the same bold for threads with new activity since i last read that thread. another one to list all threads i have recently visited, with the same bold feature would be nice, too. and, of course, one to list all threads i have subscribed to, again with the same bold feature. they (whoever can add things there) could also do one for active threads making bold the ones i have posted in. i don't know if this forum software makes that easy for the site admin to add or if only the developers can do that.

    Click on the "Advanced Search" link top right of any page. Type your username in the User Name field. Make sure the Threads radio button is ticked by "Show Results as". Now click the Search Now button. Done. That will include threads you have started and threads you have contributed to, even if not started by yourself.

    You can fine tune the search results with the other fields.

    +1 on coffeecat's method

    That is what I use. I also check exact name, otherwise I get other freds.
    It is sorted newest first and any thread with a new post I have posted in has bold title.
