I know theres a view all posts by a user but I can't see any to view all the topics by a user?

I do alot of topics and since this forum moves so quickly, going through pages and pages of topics just to find mine is a little time consuming. Is there a way to integrate this? Or does it already exist and I'm blind as a bat? :D

i don't see any place where you can do that.  however, in advanced search, all that would have to be done really is to all a '*' on keyword place and click on the subject line checkbox and put your name in the 'by user' field.  apparently it won't let you do a * search though.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

That's one of my biggest gripes about SMF.  The search function blows and it's not easy to search by user.  The only way I know how to do it is to go to a person's profile and click the link that says "show posts by this user".  And I don't even think that grabs all of them.  I am able to search for posts by user from the admin control panel... but then that's only available to the admins (and I think the mods).

yes, there is a more in-depth member search in the mod admincp but it's just for finding members based on lots of different criteria.  Nothin' really about their threads.  Once the results are listed it only gives a link to their profile, which is what any normal user sees.  So yeah, still no venue for listing actual threads made.

Actually this is one of the many things on my todo list for mods.  It's not that hard to do either.

Why is it a mod... why not an addition to the core?

I guess it's one of those features that we are missing or forgotten about.  I'll bring it up to the team and see what they think about it.  You can also try bribingtalking to Thantos about it. :P

Seems there's already a mod to do this. Not sure why it isn't a default feature, but the mod is at http://mods.simplema...dex.php?mod=364

Hmm... I'll have to check into this.  We might have to do some work to get that one in place.  We've modified what I assume will be some of the files that works with.  Plus, we're on RC3... not sure if that one works with our release or not.

I just want to suggest this again, I'm really in need for something like this, as I have a lot of topics going at the same time which I want to access quickly, I'm having to bookmark them at the moment. :(

My hands are tied until I get some permissions on the server worked out.

I suggest you go into the forum and sort by the topic creator.

well it obviously doesn't show your posts from your alter egos...

also, it paginates the posts. You might want to click those little page numbers on the bottom of the list.

If that's still not what you meant, then..I dunno what to tell you man.  It works just fine for me, even on a test reg member account.
