If you click on this link hotukdeals.com/for…php you should be able to see recent threads. It's under 'User CP' above.

Those are subscribed threads only though Ray.

PoisonJam why not click your username to bring up profile then "find all posts by.." that'll then show everything starting with most recent.

Good point Thanks I mis-read the comment :oops:

Ahh, didn't see that! Perfect!

In other forums I've seen this option in the "Quick Links" drop down, doesn't seem as obvious that way but glad I know where it is now. Thanks

Actually, this doesn't seem to work that well as I actually have to find one of my posts first to do that! Unless I'm missing something? Doesn't seem to be anything in my CP.

EDIT: Yeah, this option is very much for people who want to read my posts rather than for me wanting to see whose replied after my post. You can get to it this way but it's quite a long process and the results aren't exactly the most useful for that purpose. I guess I'll just have to stick to the advanced search.

On the active user screen you can see your name - click that, you'll be first in list so not difficult to find. Index, click, view all. Hardly time consuming?

No, that way isn't at all, if you're actually aware of it. I didn't see my name on a list at the bottom of the page though, I've honestly never scrolled down that far. You have to admit it's not an obvious way to someone who's new to the forums...

Thank you though, that solves my problem

I know you've only posted 67 times but bear in mind for the future it only stores your last 500 posts. :thumbsup:

The only problem with "Find all post by..." is that it shows you your last post first and doesn't actually indicate, from what I can see, if anyone has replied to your post and what was the most recently updated thread.

Advanced searching for my name shows me which threads I've posted in have been replied to since my last visit. The results list is exactly what I want, I just wish there was a slightly quicker way to do this. dinosteveus, I have performed the search and bookmarked it and it seems to be working for now but I'm not sure if it will always work (i.e. after this session times out) as it's dynamically generated.

Set subscription options as subscribe to all and view usercp is only other way?

Original Poster

Thanks once again, Sean. Giving this a try now...

In the "Find more posts by this user"....

When you see the list if there is the http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_statusicon/thread_new.gif next to it then there has been a comment added after you wrote...

Edit: Oh i dunno, whats this one mean then hahah http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_statusicon/thread_hot_new.gif

Glowing one means it's new response and it's hot.

Hot meaning its on the front page (over 40 degrees)?

No it's a rely threshold in the forums. It's one thing I'd like to get integrated with the temp though yeah.

Sounds like you had not got it set to subscribe when you are replying to a thread poison. This is what I have set, and it lists all in the UserCP, showing those which have been replied to.

Enabled "subscribe to all threads" option and am one very happy bunny now

Thanks to all those who chipped in to help me!
