Hi,

I would appreciate if you can tell me how can I view all the messages posted by a particular user.

If I use the profile tool and then click on view recent posts, it only display the previous 50 posts. How do I see the remaining posts.

Thanks,
AJ

JavaRanch is excellent in this regard!

Please go to the Search feature (the one on top of the page) and place your member id at the bottom of the form and submit it.

Good luck!
Dan

Dan is correct. Use the search facility and search by the member number.

I will be moving this thread to "JavaRanch" forum.

The search result displays a maximum of earliest 200 topics. Is there a way to return the latest 200 topics of a particular member?

Thanks Dan and Ajith for the quick response.


However there is some discripency in terms of number of posts by a particular user. e.g. for member # 69319, if I use the search functionality by member id, it only display 28 posts. However if go to user's profile and view recent posts, it display posts. Whereas the member profile for member # 69319 shows 67 posts.

Am I missing something ??

Thanks,
AJ

You are probably only looking at the posts in one forum and not all over the Ranch. OR there could be multiple posts in each response and it only shows up once. (And no there is no way to search every forum with that search feature!)

http://www.coderanch.com/forums/posts/listByUser/00083085

that link shows the last 50 posts

This sounds like someone is trying to spy on people! LOL
