I think (dangerous) that in the past, I asked questions and got some answers.  I got sidetracked (more like derailed) and am now ready to go ahead on my new layout.

I know I can reask the questions, but is there a way I can search "my discussions" to find the original questions and answers?   Please keep in mind thhat I am not to computer savvy.

Thank you,

Richard

It can be frustrating. How I do it is, I remember a phrase from the post or an answer and type that in the search the community section. I am very successful when doing that.

I use Chrome, and find I get my best (?) search results by typing in “cs.trains topic/ phrase.

Right where the topics start in each catagory, (I.E. "General Discussion" etc) there is a button you can click that says "My Topics". Depending on how many you started, you might be able to find what you're looking for there.

Thanks for the ideas.  I seem to be able to get the ones I have asked or answered, but was hoping to narrow it down by subject.  Will keep plugging away at it.

Thank you,

Richard

Or you could just ask the question again Big Smile. One or two here find this annoying, but most don't, and you may get your information quicker.

You also might get different (or even better) answers from folks who did't respond earlier.
