Looking up ALL posts from an user

Post by Games4theworld on August 7th 2015, 11:53 pm

Hello all,

I'm trying to look up ALL posts from a specific user, but when I use the "Show all posts by user" option, in their profile under "Statistics", I can't go further than page 13.
Is there any way to get past this weird restriction and see ALL the posts from an user?

Thank you in advance. Smile

Kind regards,

Unfortunately it isn't possible by an easy way, search function is restricted to 300 posts.

However, it might be possible by using a HTML page and Javascript (to get posts). Hard to not hit the request limit though.

Thank you for your reply.
So I should write my own script to get that done? Razz

I just don't see why it is possible to go all the way back to day 1 when you're in a (sub-)forum, but you can't just see ALL of an user's post starting from day 1.

Well the posts are still psychally there, just cant be seen by the search engine due to limitations with it.

Currently the search feature only shows a total of around 257 results, even in a normal search or one consisting of a user's posts. The topics / posts displayed are usually the most recent.

You can feel free to make a suggestion, if you like.
