Sometimes I remember that someone wrote a very nice answer to a question. While I remember the author, I don't always remember the question asked. Is there a way to search the site by focusing on the author's of answers?

The "Advanced Search Tips" tooltip is at right from the "Search" button on the search page:


To search for answers by tohecz in the tag [tex-core] the query user:11002 is:answer [tex-core] works. To find the correct user ID, either visit the profile of the user (and the ID is in the address), or look him in the user panel.

  • Excellent. Narrowed my search to three possibilities with the second one the one I was looking for. Thank you!!!
