or extend this view to more than 50, or to filter according to date or according to topic/keyword.
ubb does not return searches on name, and google is also ugly!

UBB search gives you 200 matches maximum. You get to the next 40 by clicking on
"Displaying Topics 1 - 40 (200 total)      [More Matches]" link located at the top of the page below the moose between "� Hello, G Vanin [ log out ] " and "Topic   Date   Forum" table headers.

However, View Recent Posts appears to be limited to 50 maximum. Perhaps InfoPop (who wrote UBB) thought if you wanted more than 50 you would do a search using the user ID rather than just using view recent posts.

Marilyn,
thanks.
It does not show all my posts.
For ex., searching in Sun Certified Web Component Developer
for "vanin"
gives too few (just5-6 from >100)
It is extremely uncomfortable because I cannot find my own posts, especially where I am not the author
View Recent Posts has disadvantage that it shows too many repetitions (if I replies 6 times, it is shown all)
It iis not only for my specific name. Searching for Marilyn also miss a lot

If you search on a name it will only show posts where the name is in the text. If you search on the user number, you will find the posts that are posted by the user with that number.

Try searching in Sun Certified Web Component Developer using "Search By Registered Member Number: " 19732. I got 40 results.

Thanks again. I am becoming a M.Sci. in searching, but it is more important than anything else, what I can short-sightedly see...

UBB does not provide this function.

What I asked, see the beginning, was nasweres by Marilyn.
Thank you, Marilyn.

I've got it I should have been searching by signature's "Guennadi".

It was not obvious that left-handed mandatory name is not inside each my post (text)
I only have fear that Map is citing me all over the forum

Above the problem, that GOOGLE.COM has strange failures of non-compliance to search criteria/filters and impossibility to search by parts of the word, it only searches after scrawling the content, so it is inevitably fails to search what somebody posted recently, during the work.
