1.  The old forum listed all the new threads I started and all the posts by me to others' threads.  The new system seems to only list new threads.  When I ask it to search for my screen name through all the text and list my most recent post, it will list a thread that I have posted on at some point that has been most recently posted to by anyone.  How can I compile a list of all my posts chronologically?

2.  I can't seem to figure out how to alter the font, size, and color of a Subject line in a new post.  How do I do this?

1 when you do search, you can choose to Search forum & from "Full text", then you will get all words you have posted. If you choose search from "Title", then you can only get the posts you started.

2 the subject line is defaulted. So you can edit it in the message board, and leave the subject line empty.

Answer to 2. is perfect.  Thanks.

Answer to 2. is perfect.

Answer to 1. grabs all threads where the string matt605 appears, but the "Sort by" feature won't work for me.  It lists the threads I've posted to beginning with the thread that had most recent posting by anyone, not the thread that had the most recent post by me.  Don't know how to work around this.  Maybe it is that way to protect people from having their posts viewed in chronological order by other forumites, but listing all posts chronologically for the user was one good feature of the old system that I cannot replicate under the new system, which otherwise is a wonderful improvement and an excellent work.
