  • Currently, you cannot search by user. In a multiple author blog, this could be useful. The ability for multiple authors is there, why not include the ability to search by user?

  • Hmmm. Rather than a ‘search by user’ function, I think you’d be better served by a ‘more by this user’ link that appears somewhere beside the Comments link at the bottom of each post. Clicking on the link would take you to a page lists posts, or perhaps an aggregation of the posts themselves.
    As an alternative, if you don’t have a lot of posting users, a link list of users appearing in the menu with the number of posts each has made that takes you to a similar page as above might be the way to go.
    Wouldn’t necessarily be all that difficult to achieve.
    How handy are you with PHP / MySQL?
    Much warmth,

    I’m not handy at all, unfortunately. I know enough to modify the php script to shape the page as I want, but not really enough to code this myself. I agree, the idea of a list with the number of each users posts would be more efficient, but I don’t know how to go about this.
    If only I’d stuck to it and learned PHP/MySQL over the summer…I’m intermediate with C++, so I know the logics of programming, I guess I was just too lazy. And now with school, no time to learn anything but what they say to 😉
