User Profile -- Display User's Posts and Comments

    It would be great for returning users if they could click into their profiles to see a list of their comments/posts with links, so they can click into them and see if there's been any responses.

    This would be a great way for users to manage a lot of comments they made across many different posts -- means users are more likely to engage in ongoing conversations. Otherwise, the user has to remember every single post they commented in, and click into that post, scroll, try and find their comment, etc.

    You can do this already. You just need a theme that has an author page template.

    I'm actually very interested in figuring out how to display a list of a user's comments in the author page. I have searched high and low regarding this.

    I know that you can display posts as demonstrated with the template at http://codex.wordpress.org/Author_Templates but I would be interested in learning how to display a user's comments there.

    I use themes with author page templates - this works really good.

  7. I definitely agree with you on that one. After all, many others already have implemented it and some started implementing it. I think it would be wise to implement it but with a different color. That is right! Now that most of them have them, it is better to come up with something different yet delivering the same insurance where the returning users have direct access to their profiles, thereby viewing comments as well as posts!

    I was looking for a solution to this for a long time. I was trying to create a good user based blog but I didn't manage to overcome the difficulties with user interaction. The best solution I found is Alkivia open community plugin but you need to be good in CSS to make it visually appealing.

  10. I was looking at http://codex.wordpress.org/Author_Templates and I didn't see the code for displaying Authors comments on the Author template. I really don't want to change my template so I would like to create my own Author template that will display both authors posts and comments.
