    I’m trying to find my old posts and notice they aren’t there. I’m guessing they are gone gone?

    I've been wondering the same thing..
    From what I can see, they aren't gone, but they don't show up in your content anymore.
    You have to go to the forum where you posted, and scroll back and back until you find your old posts. Thats what I did, and I found my parenting journal and birthing story from 8 years ago. But they no longer show up in my content anymore.

    I have found older posts of mine by searching for them by the thread/journal name and my username. I just found my old parenting journal doing this and I haven't posted in it for a few years.

    Click on the search box on the upper right of the page. In the posted by member field enter your username. Leave everything else blank and clidk search.

    The reason the other methods don't give complete results is there are 2 different search engines involved and one is no longer regularly indexed.
