Improved post viewer on profiles

Feature Requests

Found 4 posts - Go to Last Post


I was looking at a few profiles this morning, and GTN has that lovely forum post count showing our posts. Which is cool, has a good format, but when I've used it in the past it was just to find a recent post I made. Well today I actually clicked the 'view more' button at the bottom which took me to what looked like a regular forum search. This was uglier (personal opinion) but my real problem with it was it's limited to 500 results.

500 results I get for a forum search, you probably need to narrow your results some more if you can't find what you are looking for in that, however for this purpose, Truth be told I was counting posts in those stupid ass 'forum games'; aka approved spam, for a specific user. Yes I could get this by going to the forum and doing a custom search, absolutely, but that wasn't my intent, I just stumbled into it. Ideas to 'fix' this..

  1. Remove the 500 limit on the query when the request is made from a member page
  2. Display the fitler option boxes in the results so I can refine my search if needed

I dunno, that's two possible solutions. I had a director once that told me not to bring him problems unless I bought solutions too. He was laid off years ago, but I think the advice is still sound.

I for one could probably use it, but are you saying to have this option just for your personal profile or make it so that you could do this on anyones profile and so you could see their post? Or is that one in the same option?

What I want is not in the results so..



And I end up with this...



What I would hope for is a paginated view that I had in the second screen shot and remain on your page, not get redirected to the forum search.

Ooooh! I thought you were talking about something entirely different, I like them pics and to clarify I was not trying to make light of your request.
