Heureka!

Ok, I didn't find "it", but I found "something"!
Do a search for a keyword in discussions : then look at the entries for the discussions: They report "Last entry by USERNAME at TIME"...
So the thing we want is in there somewhere... now we just have to tweak it out into the open!

I put the request in the suggestions box... I can't think of a way to hack this, since, sadly the search engine as-is doesn't seem to look at the names of participants, nor at the text posted.

I ran into that too

And couldn't find a way to make it meet the current need either. I also discovered that after a certain "age", it DIDN'T give a "last posted by". I recall the cut off being around two years (I was looking for a 2007 blog of mine).

I also discovered that searching by username is strange. I was looking for a post by my husband but the search returned 0 results. When I searched for the blog post that I knew he posted to, I was able to find him. *sigh*

I found it at the bottom of the main discussions list...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Thank you Ansu!

I noticed the "more" link at the bottom... that's the one I linked.
Funny thing is, I've been convinced that there wasn't a link to show all discussions... I could be wrong, or they could have just added it...

Close, close,...

The wheels are in motion it seems, unless, that option has always been there.

The option was there

by Tigger_Two In reply to Close, close,...

We just had to find it.

Click "View More" to dependably get there any time.

Recent comments not throwing a thread to the top of the heap is still broken but I haven't checked the bug sheet to see if it was ever logged. I have to run to an appointment but will check when I get back and make sure that it gets there.

Ansu, that is darned close!

I pulled that into its own window and will try refreshing it to track incoming posts. Thanks!
