i suppose I do. Thought there was something a bit more recent. guess not.

Well, we can always start a new collection in a dedicated topic where people simply post their documents as attachments. Do you think we'll see the same spirit of sharing as back then?

hard to tell. the d-word has changed a lot since those days.

Is there that place where posted documents are attached?

Also, how would I search for posts by
posted by a particular person
cross topic topic (e.g. ITVS)?
If such searches are possible.
Thanks!

Linda, have you had a look at the list of tags? (that baggage tag icon). We create them as we go along, so that list can get quirky. I don't know if you can first assemble all the posts for any one tag, and then do a word/name search of just those. Lemme try and I'll get back to you in a few seconds.

Just tried: it works very well. Look at the top of your page, select tags, decide which one you want to look through, double click it, all those posts will appear, then click advanced search, if you are not seeing a place to write the name of the posting person. ( "Post by ....", something like this.)

There are several "ITVS + Something else" tags, too.

Aha. And duh.
Thank you Joanne.
I once wondered about tags and that little symbol but failed to adequately investigate. Very helpful. Thanks again.

posted documents: use the "attach file" as if you were attaching the document to an email in most email pgms. If you are looking for posted documents only, I have no idea if the search engine does this. I haven't looked that closely

Yeah, it's the latter I was thinking of, like a Borgesian archive. I will try to explore it. Thank you again.

Linda, the Advanced Search lets you search for posts by a particular person. Or you can go to a person's profile and click on the link to view all their recent posts.

You can attach documents to every post but there's no specific way of searching for attachments only. Is this something we should implement?

Thanks Ben, the d-word thinks of everything, I now know how to search.

I do believe I'm not the first who has wondered about a document archive...
