Can we have the option to sort by date please. With most recent first. It is currently in alphabetical order according to topic.

How do you search by nickname?

To search by nickname:

Click on Advanced Search (top right, above the moon)
Then type in the nickname into the box under where it says "find messages by (nickname)"

Set a date range if desired - can be useful, as search is limited to 500 posts, some users will have far more posts than that.

Hi Mumby, in talk, look to the right-hand top corner and you will see and advanced search button, you can search by nickname from there.

Dance, Thank you for the suggestion, we will raise in the office in the New Year.

Sorry Mumby - I wandered off down the corridors of the WWW for a bit.

NannyNick - the search i often find myself doing is when i am connecting 2 possible posters - it may be useful to know when someone last posted as MNetterX and when MNetterSobStory started to post IYSWIM.
