Is there a way to search the archives for comments from specific users? Or view all of a users comment activity?

    If you type the user's handle into the search box (upper right corner) it will come up with all the comments in which that user was referenced. Don't think that's what you're looking for, though, but usually is someone is referenced in a comment, chances are pretty good that they themselves will have made a comment somewhere earlier in the thread.

    Thanks @Jamie Hall You are right in understanding what I am after. Your work around is something I do now, but takes a lot of time to find the relevant comments I am after. I want to find comments from power users on specific subjects.

    Cheers

    If you click on a user name, it takes you to their profile page. On the right under "activity" is "comments", which I think is every comment they made. Is that what you're looking for?

    In Google you can use your search criteria and site:heatinghelp.com. (I think that's the right combo

    This goes for any site

    User username site: heatinghelp.com

    for example

    Hi @Leon82, thanks for follow up. Yes this is a great utility I have often used. But not what I was after in this case. @Ratio provided the answer I needed.
