If you are looking for your own forum topics, you can find them in your profile, under Discussions/Forums. Then you may scroll through to find the one(s) you want. To find all of your own comments, it's Discussions/Comments.

Unfortunately, those are strictly time-ordered inclusive lists, with no way to filter or sort them :-(

It is actually quite hard to search for information filtering on username. You can include it in your search, but you may not find everything you expect.

Try the search box to the top-right of the page.

If you don't get the right result immediately, use the button that says "graphical search".

Thank you for the response.

How does the 'graphical search' differ from the 'search' box?

Thanks

It gives you an interface to Instructables old, specially written, database search, which is more customizable. The standard Search box makes use of Google's indexing system and software to search within the instructables.com site.
