    BUT FIX THE FUCKING SEARCH FUNCTION SO I CAN FIND THREADS STARTED BY A GIVEN FUCKING USER!!!!!!


    I don't need to every day. Only some days. Not even fridays. But if a forum can do that just fine in 1932, it seems like that same forum can maybe do it easily in 2017.

    Here's where you show me a really simple way to do that which makes me feel like I have anger management issues. And hey I might.

    Maybe you should talk an 29er xc bike out for a blat...... that'd make you feel better and less angry.

    Hmm... I actually didn't realize that this wasn't part of the search function.

    I'll see what I can do. Best I can offer right now is you can search for content by a certain user, check the box to display results as threads, and either do an in-page search for the username (e.g. control-F, type kidwoo into box) or scroll through the results looking for the user's avatar. All of the avatars and usernames on the thread results page are the starter of the thread.

    Not ideal, though. You're looking for the old "thread started by:" search field that existed in vBulletin, right?

    @Nick you can search for a user's content. What you can't do (AFAIK) is search for only threads started by that user.

    That content is all of kidwoo's posts, but not the threads started by him.

    Let's simplify and hardcode a search of all threads started by Sandwich.
