How do you search Your Private Messages?


(Bcguy) #1

Is it possible to search your own private messages?

I’m trying to find an old discussion I had with someone via PM and I’m having a difficult time. Regular search doesn’t seem to do it.

I agree with this. @sam can we add a private message search directive? in:messages perhaps?

It would be cool if while on the Private Messages section, it automatically added that directive :smile:

Well, it would be the check box underneath, the same way it happens on the user page or the category page.

Allow searching of Moderators messages

That’d be fine too :slight_smile: As right now it has the @<username here> so it would be great to see “Search your messages”

As of v1.5 private messages can be searched.
