Find previously posted questions

Hello, this may seem silly I've posted only twice before, but how do I find answers to previous questions I've posted?  I searched by my name and not finding my questions.  I have received e-mails when they are answered, but wanted to revisit those answers and now can't find them.

Please let me know.

Thank you.

Oh, if you mean the one for variations on "need", that was my fault. :( I tried to combine the two answers I gave (the first time, I was explaining "il faut que" and not "il me faut"), but something got hung up on the delete function, so when I tried to do it again, I deleted the initial response too. I'll go ahead and post a less long-winded explanation this time. :)

Thanks I appreciate the update on both.  That said, I don't think my question is clear but isn't there a way to find previously posted questions (and answers?) 

I like to go back and review them.  However, when you go to the Forum page it has the 5 categories of questions, but mine is buried among hundreds of others, isn't there a way to search/filter on questions you've personally submitted?

The only reason I found these was I had the old links.

Thank you for your help!

I know of two ways to find one's previous posts and/or questions, and each one requires remembering the original key words.  At the top of the Forum page is a box called, "Search for a Question," and at the top of the website page is a box called, "Search."  The Forum Search, looks for all incidents of the key words within the Forum, and the Website Search looks for all incidents of the key words within the Forum, the lessons and other places.

On numerous times, I've used the Website Search with good success.  Try the Forum seach to find your question.  You could also record your questions under your Notes.  Then when you want to refer back to a question, you need only copy and paste the key words into the Forum's seach box.  Hopefully this helps.

Thanks Diana that's what I was afraid of, i.e. needing to remember the phrase to find the question.  Good idea to put that in notes, I use the notes a lot so I'll think of a flag or something to note the question.

Merci!
