Hi!
Doing a all post by this registered user search from user profile failed for me.
The server responded with an error like it was invalid URL.
The URL in question is <a href="http://www.eporkchop.com/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/~banana/search.cgi?action=simplesearch&SearchIn=&ForumChoice=ALL&SearchTerms=&BooleanAND=&SearchDate=&SearchUser=Pawel<BR rel="nofollow">Veselov&ExactName=yes&File=temp-2451458-080053-z32w.cgi&Total=1&StartAt=2"> http://www.eporkchop.com/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/~banana/search.cgi?action=simplesearch&SearchIn=&ForumChoice=ALL&SearchTerms=&BooleanAND=&SearchDate=&SearchUser=Pawel
Veselov&ExactName=yes&File=temp-2451458-080053-z32w.cgi&Total=1&StartAt=2

But clicking the link in my message works fine, though.

Can you tell me how to recreate the problem?

Easily. I did the following:
looked at my own profile and clicked that link above the profile that says smth. like 'search all posts by that registered user'.

You've got me puzzled now. what link above the profile? If I click "profile" from any page, all I get is a password input screen, then a form to edit some personal details.
What am I missing?

Hmm.
Each post has three small pictures above it :
  • View profile for user xxxxxx
  • Edit/delete message
  • Send mail to xxxxxx

  • Clicking the first opens the new browser page with poster's profile. On of the the very first lines is the clickable link for searching all messages posted by this user.

I just tried that for Frank. I clicked on the little face next to one of his messages.
It came back and claimed there were no posts by Frank.
The software recently had a major update that supposedly fixed a lot of bugs. Maybe this is one of them. I'll update soon.

Ah, I understand now. I thought you meant the word "profile" which is listed in the set
near the top of each forum and thread page. I tend to forget about the little icons on each post (except for edit, but I use even that quite rarely.)
Just goes to show how confusing icons can be, even with pop-up descriptions.
