I have been learning Silverstripe for about 3 weeks and have found certain comments in this forum from certain contributors extremely useful.

When viewing a contributor's profile is it possible to list more of a contributors comments than just their last ten?

Nope. But you could try searching for the users name.

Hi Willr,

Although searching on a user's name threw up other people's comments as well, it did work quite well when I tried it. Plus you can sort the results in different orders such as relevance and date.

This is a feature we all wished was available on this forum & the Forum plugin too , Lets hope the SS3 compatible version will have it built in ;)

Instead of wishing you could add the feature yourself and submit a pull request...

1- Not that exp in SS3 + GridField "yet"
2- No time to test the forum module now, Working on few other modules
3- There is no UserProfile module that is compatible with SS3 "yet" , forum without a UserProfile management is no good :(
4- When I have more time, I WILL add few features to it ;)
5- :D

ha! :D

It is the response I got awhile ago... I had the same wish but not that strong... that wish comes back when some idiot has spammed 80 times about bleedin nike trainers... would make it easier to mark em all as spam... at the moment I do 10 tabs worth at a time :(

I think I get the Idea of GridField after working on my gallery module, but there is more to learn ;)
I should be able to use DataObject::SomeClass->get()->Filter(array( 'MemberID'=>'CurrentMemberID) ,.... then use renderWith to use a custom template for the new dataList created by that filter ? does this sound correct ?

I see the forum module is updated to SS3 ;) .. do you know of any SS3 compatible UserProfile manager/editor like the one for SS2.4 ? If they are planning to upgrade to SS3 I think they will be upgrading the UserForum module soon ?

When I start working on the forum module, I will make sure you get a button to list all Posts by members & a tick box to mark as spam .
Back to messing up with some code :)
Edited :: BTW, doesn't removing the 1st post in the topic remove all sub-posts ?
