Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Can you search this forum for images you have posted?


Recommended Posts

Is there a way you can get a view of all the images you have posted on the forum? I have tried selecting the 'image' option in search, but it keeps asking for a 'term', there is no 'specific' term, I just want to see my photos...

I just tried the search for images and I see what you mean with the result asking for a “term”. I also tried tweeking some of the advanced search options to no avail. It seems odd it would ask for a term when the images that we upload do not have a specific term associated with them.

The image search is only for what's in the Member's Gallery.

You can't search for posts with images using the search tool.

That's exactly what I want LOL How do I access my 'gallery'?

You don't have anything, you can just go to a member's profile, see their activity and then pick images:

OK, what went wrong? (Feel free to treat me like a 5 year old! LOL)

This is someone's profile who does:

So, in the last 2 years I have posted 100s of photos, I can't access them then unless I posted them to some kind of 'gallery' rather than just posting them?

You'd have to go back through your posts:

There is no way of asking search to only show posts with images.

LOL, almost 2000 posts! Now, that would have been a good 'lockdown' project last March, but I'm already losing the will to live 🤣

(I see a good opportunity though for the next forum upgrade!)

Do you just want to use the image again, or do you want to find an old thread?

If you just want to use the image then click 'other media' in the bottom right of the reply box and then 'insert existing attachment'.

Tom Sir, you are a friggin' genius!! That's exactly what I wanted! That's a well hidden feature!! Thank you so much...

By the way Stephen, if you press the button to see options of items to view (looks like three horizontal lines in top right corner of the forum home screen) press that then the account link, and just under the link to go to your profile there is a link to see my attachments. All of your pictures associated with your posts will be there.

I might add that this method is for finding them on your mobile phone, and may be different on a computer.

As the saying goes, 'more than one way to skin a cat', everyday is a school day (and it works on a computer!)
