Filter to see just OP's comments in long thread?

I am a fairly new user and not sure if there is a function that I just can't find or if it doesn't exist.

If I come in in a long thread late and want to get the gist of what's happened, it would be great to be able to filter to see just the OPs replies? does this exist? At the moment I have worked out how to get the OPs replies in a different colour but in a long thread it's a lot to scroll through!

There is no such function.

If you're using the desktop site on a pc, you can use ctrl+F to search for the username of the OP, though, and hat will scroll you through all the OP's posts (plus a few more, obviously, if there's replies with the full name in!)

So you mean you want to see all the OP's posts in a list and nobody else's replies? No, you can't do that AFAIK.

If you go to the Customise menu, there's a setting to allow you to show all the posts from a thread's original poster, and/or all your posts with a particular background colour - on mine, my posts are on a pink background and the OP's posts are on a green background - this enables you to pick out the OP's posts quickly and easily when scrolling through.

OP has done that but it's not enough SDTG.

Thanks all for your replies and SDT that's exactly what I was after!

Sometimes you just want to see the outcome of a thread IYSWIM

I missed that, Sparklingbrook - and I have no excuse, because the post is highlighted! blush

Sparklingbrook yes that was ideally what I was after but I guess I will have to live without it smile

If you use the app do a search under the OPs name for the date the thread started til now. that gives you the thread title and only that particular posters posts on it. I use it loads for the very reason you want it 😊
