[RFC] Include Topic count on view profile & search for topic

Post by Danielx64 » Mon Nov 28, 2011 1:06 am

Ok

Right now, you go to someone profile and you want to do a search for every topic that this user has started. You can't do that. The only thing that you can do a search on (by default) is all the post that the user has made.

Now you could get around this by going to forumname/search.php but it would be nice to be able to do this in one click from the user's profile.

Putting this feature in should be a no brainer as most of what is needed is already there. We could almost use all the same code that is used for the search post link and so on on the user's profile. As far as I can see, the only permission that may need to be created is can search user's topic.

What do you think?

Agreed. That would be actually pretty useful!
Slightly better English than it was in 2005, still improving :D

So basically on the profile, beneath the "Total Posts" section, there would be a "Total Topics" like so:
Total Topics: # | Search user's topics
Personally, I think it should say "View user's topics" but I put "Search" to be consistent with the current "Search user's posts". The "Search user's topics" is a link similar to the posts one that simply shows all topics started by the user. The link would be similar to:

Code: Select all

%root%/search.php?author=%username%&sr=topics
Please start a ticket for this in the tracker.

I agree with calling both "View ..." instead of "Search ...". The search query would have to contain &sf=firstpost to restrict the search to the first post of topics only. Otherwise you'll get a list of all topics the user has posted in.

I thought that was the intent of this (to show all posts made by the user). :?:

No they were talking about all topics created by the user.

This would be a good feature to add and I believe there is a MOD for it at the moment.
