    I have tried to use method described in this post http://www.jotform.com/answers/253877-How-do-I-find-posts-I-made-on-the-forum to find my posts (search for nkasic), but if finds only 3 out of 6 posts.

    However, when I click on link "sort by date" it finds all 6 of them.

    It seems that it cannot find the ones where I'm not the original poster, but the one who commented.

    It might be intented, but it seems like a bug to me.

    Please take a look.

    Hi,

    I just tried this on the support forum. I searched using your username https://www.jotform.com/answers/search.php?search=nkasic  

    There are 4 results that were all by you

     

    if you sort by Date, then, it will also display those that are not created by you -- it includes even those that you only commented on. This is currently how the forum search do the query.

    If I understand you correctly, you wanted the initial search results to also include those results that you only participated on, similar to when hitting Sort By Date option.

    I will raise this to our higher team support so that they can be aware of this too.

     

    Thank you for sharing to us this information.

    You will be notified when we update about this.

    It's not that important to me now when I know how it works.

    But it's not logical and it might confuse other users.
    Maybe you can create a couple of check buttons for most used options (e.g. posted by me, commented by me etc)
    You are form masters and yet have just a single search field :-)
    What if someone has username which is some sommon word (e.d. button, field, form ets.)?
    He would get hundreds of seach results :-)
