I think there should be a quick link on every page (possibly even outside of the dropdown rather than in) which goes right to all of your content. On another site I'm always posting on you can easily get right to a listing of all of your past posts. With IPB first off you can't even get a listing of ALL posts as it cuts it off. Secondly, you can't click a link on any page and be right at all of your posts. Finding someone's past posts is so important that I think it should be separate from the other content and just be listing in a regular table filling the screen rather than in tabs. After posting on a site where it's easy to get one's past posts quickly (and thoroughly) it's more noticable how much better it is and that wth IPB it's not as accessible and obvious.
I use the My Content link in the upper right dropdown (the dropdown with your current display name).
Seems to work for me to check whether there are any unread replies to topics I have started or replied to.
That doesn't show all content though as for some reason they limit it to 1 year of content. I assume to cut back on how much content is retrieved. But that's why to have a separate area for posts because there has to eb SOME way to egt everything and not just the past year.
You can only bypass it if you use the advanced search page to specifically search between dates. Not fond of this.
