"Show all posts" must show posts

For v1.4:

Now the link like site.name/search.php?action=show_user&user_id=N output topic subjects only.
I suggest to show posts instead of topics (as in v1.3).

It'll be good to copy functionality of v1.3 search:
- action=show_user_posts,
- action=show_user_topics
- action=show_recent with optional value parameter (default=24h)

Re: "Show all posts" must show posts

This will make the 1.4.3 release. I've implemented the feature, only the frontend (aka the links) need to be taken care of now.

I'd also appreciate some testing.

Re: "Show all posts" must show posts

Hm, I'd actually like some feedback on where to put the links. In 1.3, the links in the status bar (new and recent posts) were much shorter (showing more information when hovering over them). Should we do it that way?

Yes and make them flush right.

Yes, please do the same.

Re: "Show all posts" must show posts

Ok, to get this done finally...

We currently have the following links:

  • profile

    • all user topics

    • all user posts

  • status bar (index and search pages)

    • new posts

    • mark all forums as read

  • footer (index page)

    • recent posts (default 24h)

    • unanswered posts

    • all user subscriptions

    • all user posts

I believe we should put the following links in the following three links in the status bar and leave them there consistently (on all pages, don't know why they shouldn't be): new, recent/active, unanswered topics.

The subscriptions link can go to the profile page. I will probably later add the possibility for admins (and mods?) to view a user's subscribed topics, too.

This leaves us with the "show your posts" link in the footer, which we can simply remove because it isn't needed very often (in my opinion) and is already available in the profile.

To sum it up: we get a cleaned up footer, quick links that are accessible more easily and all links in sections where they make sense (once you get rid of old habits).

Save for the "mark as read" link. Any suggestions where that should be going?

This is all very much how 1.3 handled it. I don't think that's a bad idea.

Go for it, having the links stay at the same place no matter where you are is a big plus.

Re: "Show all posts" must show posts

I meant more of another position on the index page (or the forum page for "mark this forum as read" respectively).

Also: Should quick searches (or rather some of them: "unanswered topics" and "active topics" be available for guests, too?)

Re: "Show all posts" must show posts

What's an easy way to grab this and merge it with the master to test it?
