Wikinut website displays exactly 25 articles of Wikinut writers on their profile pages, and it is generally difficult to find all of the published pages of any writer by Wikinut search.

But there's simple method to search on Google and find all the published pages of any Wikinut author.

A guide to search and find all the published pages of any Wikinut author

In one of the articles, recently Wikinut author Buzz discussed the issue of "not able to view more than the 25 published pages of any Wikinut writer".

To know more about how various authors discussed the issue, please see Buzz's page: Why Are Our Older Articles Keep Sinking.

But, there is an easy method of finding all the published pages of any Wikinut author, by the Google Advanced Search.

Here's how:

Go to google.com/advanced_search

On the Google Advanced search page, do the following:

For example, you want to search for all the published pages of Buzz,

type "By Buzz" (without quotes) in the box that appears beside the text that says this exact wording or phrase,

then type "wikinut.com" (without quotes) in the box beside the text that says "Search within a site or domain:"

Under Need more tools? select "show only basic results" in Reading level box.

and finally, click on the "Advanced search" button at the bottom right-hand corner.

This advanced search fetches all the pages published by Buzz, though there might be very few repetitions.

An alternate simple method

Alternately, you can type the following text in the search box on the basic Google.com page.

"By Buzz" site:wikinut.com

You'll get again the same search results as you got from the Google Advanced Search page..

Great information.

Out of interest - everyone should google their own names to see what comes up.

Have to agree that is the best way to find all your articles and have found many of mine that way too.
Love to google my name from time to time, at least once a day...

Thanks, dear friend Rathna, for being unarguably a very resourceful problem-solver. It's the best solution there is in the present circumstances, BUT:

1. Wikinut users don't have to rely on Google search just as you've shown us, i.e. making Wikinut dependent on outside help to view authors' pages when it can "expand" wikinut's memory infrastructure, as it were, to make it in-built in our profile pages to browse on ALL articles we have, to which we can put a link in our new page for us, but most specially the readers, to see our earlier pages in chronological order, let alone our work in its entirety all within the borders of Wikinut; and,
2. Readers, and I mean readers, should take precedence over other considerations, to have the last choice to see all articles of their favorite authors right in our own backyard, Wikinut, without having to resort to Google search (which they wouldn't know like we now do) which is embarrassingly outside of Wikinut; and
3. Technically speaking, I don't know about a website's memory capacity or limitation, but if Wikinut is just following the usual trends in displaying limited published work as others do, why not incorporate an unlimited space for ALL published articles in the profile pages of its authors to break from tradition and be a trailblazer by showing all good articles, good or bad, by the authors who patronize its website. By the same token, of course, it should give unlimited memory capacity to our Followers.

But, of course, dear friend, I applaud your article with a caveat: It's the best thing, for now, to access our older articles but you must agree, not our viewers who we always count on and who are the lifeblood of Wikinut.
